Kayla S.

Kayla was born on June 8, 2010, with a congenital heart defect. She is pictured here on the eve of her second surgery to mitigate its effects, the previous one having been done in October 2010, when she was only five months old. “Kayla is a happy, warm, sensitive, sweet and empathetic girl,” her mother says.

The family is “so touched, delighted and amazed to receive all of the beautiful pictures of Kayla. We cannot thank you enough!”
