Heart to Heart with Anna Update

No comments

It is April 2018 and I have a lot to update everyone on regarding the show.

Many of you are Facebook friends with me and you’ve been through the last 6 months with me of seeing how my mother fell ill and then passed away. It has been a difficult time for me. I am bereaved. I am sad. I am also at peace. My mother left this world exactly as she wished to — very peacefully in her sleep with my sister and me by her side. She wasn’t in pain. She simply went to sleep and didn’t wake up.

Today (April 10th) marks the conclusion of Season 11 of “Heart to Heart with Anna.” It’s hard to believe we have already finished the season devoted to Heart Warrior Siblings! We interviewed all kinds of siblings and overall the results were inspiring. Children are resilient and families find creative ways to be there for all of their children even when one of the children is born with a congenital heart defect and even when their Heart Warrior passes away.

Next week we will have a LIVE show! It’s been quite a while since our last LIVE show. We will be featuring Mary Kay Klein and Anna-mary Geist. We will be discussing the upcoming Care, Hope, Discover 2018 conference to be held in Boston on May 5, 2018. It will be a very interesting congenital heart defect conference and people will be attending from all over the United States!

We will have a mini-season between Season 11 and 12 where we will interview people around the world in both English and their native tongue. We are very excited about how this underscores our mission as part of the HUG (Hearts Unite the Globe) Podcast Network of bringing programming to members of the congenital heart defect community around the globe. Don’t miss our first Dutch, Hebrew, and Urdu shows!

Many thanks to all of you who prayed for my mother, my family and me during this difficult time. We felt surrounded by so much love and really appreciate the kindness everyone has shown us.
