This photo from Mothers’ Day, 5/13/23, is the first family shot with our youngest grandchild Talita, shown here at 5 weeks old. Born with a severe heart defect, doctors determined she needed a heart transplant. Finally, on December 2, 8-month-old Talita received a new heart. Now at Christmastime she has moved from the ICU to a regular hospital floor, and is taking small steps in a positive direction. We are enjoying her one day at a time. (12/25/23)

UPDATE: In the first week of January, 5 weeks after her heart transplant, 9-month-old Talita finally went HOME!! Her dad said it’s a lot more work, but now they feel more like a family.

Oh my GOODNESS, this made me tear, Sue.  How wonderful to hear that Talita has been able to go home, that is such wonderful news for that precious little warrior and your family!  Your photo is awesome and I like the huge smiles on everyone's faces.   I was checking Caring Bridge but wasn't able to get on so I am so very delighted to read this happy news.  Thank you for sharing this very special page!   Big smile here, too.  😄 💜
