A strong mom is using one photo to take a stand for all of the babies that go through life with heart defects — and it’s beyond stunning.
Kelly Blumenthal is the proud mother of Finn, a 1-year-old little boy born with a rare combination of heart defects. According to Kelly, doctors didn’t think he would survive birth — let alone his first year — but after spending his entire life in the hospital and enduring 10 different surgeries, he is now thriving at home.
Although Finn has already undergone open-heart surgery at such a young age, he will need at least two more operations before the age of 3. These major procedures have left him with a large chest scar as proof of what he has already overcome. And despite Finn’s strength, he is not the only little one facing this struggle.
