Baby Born With Half A Heart Has So Much Love To Give

little one La’Zariyah Angela Gibson was born on August 1st of this year and came out smiling–not knowing she would be in for the fight of her life. La’Zariyah was born with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome (HLHS). In other words, she was born with a half of a heart.

Many of you ask, how is that possible?

Hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS) is a birth defect that affects normal blood flow through the heart. As the baby develops during pregnancy, the left side of the heart does not form correctly.
