Iryl is a little girl who was born with congenital heart disease. We met Iryl and her family at The University of Virginia Medical Center when our son was preparing for his first heart surgery. Iryl is very special to us because she was Thomas’ first girlfriend. Kendra Butler, Iryl’s mom, is a CHD advocate who spreads awareness about congenital heart disease and fundraises for organizations that support families with CHD children. Please pray for Iryl’s heart journey going forward. The picture above was taken at a local coffee shop after Thomas and Iryl came home from the hospital. We were so happy that they could enjoy a play date together. Iryl, we love you and pray that God will mend your beautiful heart.
