Our mission is to change the future for those affected by congenital heart defects as we share the love and hope of Jesus Christ.

Our story begins with a little girl named Emerson Rose, born to Jason and Susan Smith April 11th, 2011. She was born with a complex congenital heart defect, Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome. Through the Smith family’s journey to care for her, God orchestrated relationships and experiences that would impact countless CHD patients. Although Emerson Rose lived only 2 ½ months, her life continues to have a lasting impact for the glory of God because of the love and hope of Jesus Christ.
