There is a reason we use the term warrior to describe our children born with congenital heart disease.
I am convinced Kiran was born strong. A fighter. I wish it did not have to be so – or, at least, he did not have to utilize these attributes of his so often.
Daily, his warrior spirit is calm, content. He is a go-with-the-flow kind of guy, and he is just so filled with joy almost always.
But when the health battles come, you see the fight. It is something I have seen in all of the heart kiddos I have met or gotten to know virtually. They have true grit.
