Sorry for the suspense, but this deserved it's own blog post.
An organization has reached out to me and asked that I go on a speaking tour in the UK of universities and speak to their Jewish groups about our familly's journey.
The conversation went something like this:
Him: So, we feel that your story is super inspiring and really illustrates faith in trying times. Would you be interested in speaking on 5 or 6 university campuses about your story?
Me: Um, what?
I gave it some thought and had to really digest the idea. It's amazing. We never set out in any way for any of this to come about. We are just a normal, average family with a pretty miraculous daughter. I never could have believed that any of this would lead here.
But the more I thought about it, the more I felt that Tehilla's success is directly connected to her name. That people would hear about a little girl with half a heart and praise G-d. And that is what this blog has become and that is why I have said yes.
As well, the opportunity to raise more awareness about congenital heart defects is too great to pass up.
So, it's official. In February, I am flying to England for a week to go on a speaking tour!
