You are not alone.

When a baby is born with heart disease, the parents often feel frightened and alone. Having a friend who has gone through the same experience can lighten the emotional load and give parents a resource for information and advice that can be found nowhere else. Milagros is a support group, for families affected by congenital heart defects (CHDs), that provides not only one friend but many friends with that experience. The organization was created at Dell Children's Medical Center of Central Texas (formerly Children's Hospital of Austin) by a group of parents who felt that mutual support could ease the difficulties, both emotional and practical, of caring for the precious and fragile lives of their children.
