Hope and Courage

Six Life Lessons from the Parents of a Child with Congenital Heart Disease

2023 Winner of Honorable Mention for Best Indie Choice Award from Quill Hawk Publishing

5-Star Review from Readers' Choice

Tom and Kat Hansen’s lives were radically changed when their son, Harding, was diagnosed with Congenital Heart Disease (CHD) during a routine ultrasound appointment.

They initially believed the hardships that awaited would surely destroy them, but they made the life-altering decision to use the hardships to positively transform their family. Each open heart surgery, medical complication, and lengthy hospital stay taught them a powerful life lesson, and they discovered that life that is richer and more fulfilling than they could have imagined.

In Hope and Courage, Tom and Kat Hansen draw from their experience as they equip, motivate and inspire parents like themselves to prevail through the challenges that come with being the parent of a child with CHD. Their empathetic storytelling and six practical life lessons will guide parents through any hardships they may endure, while preparing them for what to expect along the way.

Relevant to any struggling parent, this book is a rallying cry for those who wish to convert any hardship into a positive, life-defining experience.
