Introducing Callan: A Little Heart Warrior in Our Miracle Gowns

We are thrilled to introduce you to Callan, the newest little heart crew member here at This Little Heart of Mine! When his mama sent us his adorable pictures, we couldn't resist sharing them along with his inspiring story.

Callan may be little, but he is a true fighter. Born with Hypoplastic Right Heart Syndrome (HRHS), he bravely spent his first 95 days in the NICU at Children's Mercy. During his time there, he underwent a heart catheterization and two intestinal procedures due to developing NEC (necrotizing enterocolitis), which resulted in him receiving an ostomy bag. Despite these challenges, Callan's spirit and resilience shine through.

Recently, back on February 15th, Callan underwent his fourth procedure to reverse his ostomy and have a g-tube placed. We are pleased to report that he is currently recovering comfortably, all while wearing our oh-so-soft and comforting bamboo miracle gowns.

Aside from fighting like a superhero, Callan has a few favorite things in life. He adores his big sister and enjoys watching Blue or Miss Rachel with her. Teething toys and anything that makes a crinkly noise also bring him joy. And of course, mama's milk provides him with the nourishment and comfort he needs.

We have been closely following Callan's heart journey and staying updated on his progress. His strength and determination have touched our hearts deeply, and we are honored that he loves his Miracle Gowns. If you want to stay connected with Callan's journey and show your support, you can join his Facebook group: Callan's Crew. Let's rally behind this little heart warrior and send him all the love and positive energy he deserves.

At This Little Heart of Mine, we believe in celebrating the bravery and resilience of every child, like Callan. Our Miracle Gowns are designed with love and care to provide comfort and support during their journey. We are grateful to be a small part of Callan's story and look forward to witnessing more milestones in his remarkable journey.
