Kristin’s Great Finds would like you to meet a special little boy named, Hayden Dorsett. In March of 2012, a beautiful baby boy named, Hayden, came into this world. He was born with a very rare birth defect called, Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome. Due to complications with this birth defect, Hayden needed to have open-heart surgery before his parent could take their precious bundle of joy home. It was a nerve-wrecking time. Yet during these anxious days, his parents spent time with Hayden, learning about him and loving him. They awaited the day they could take him home.
The day finally came! Hayden was finally well enough to go home at three weeks old!! He was able to be with his family and older brother, Jackson. His trip home was a short one though. Ten days later, Hayden needed to return to the hospital for another month of treatments. During his stay at the hospital, his personality began to blossom, he smiled a lot, and his family became closer. Lots of pictures of Hayden’s smiling face were taken to share the joy with others.
Yet again, the day arrived! Hayden was able to go home and be with his family. Hayden’s heart problems continued, resulting in many visits with specialists and therapists. His family was determined Hayden would be given the best chance at life. Throughout all these doctor’s visits, Hayden seemed to touch everyone he met with his smile and his joy.
Sadly, Hayden passed away at just over 5 months old and is now in heaven. That isn’t the end of Hayden’s story though. As devastated as Hayden’s family was (and still is), they started Hayden’s Heart Inc. in his honor. Hayden will live on forever through their work by raising CHD (Congenital Heart Defect) awareness and helping other babies and their families during their time of need.
Raegan Moya Jones, founder and owner of aden + anais®, knew of Hayden’s fight for life. During his life, it was found Hayden couldn't fall asleep without the comfort of his aden + anais® muslin swaddle blankets. In memory of Hayden and in honor of all of the children fighting Congenital Heart Disease (CHD), Raegan had swaddles designed to raise awareness for Hayden’s Heart Inc. These cotton swaddle blankets feature the Hayden’s Heart iconic logo and are produced in 3 colors: pink, blue, and taupe. With your purchase, a donation from the profits are donated to Hayden’s Heart. You can read more about Hayden’s story and the non-profit organization at http://www.HaydensHeart.org. Please consider a Hayden’s Heart swaddle blanket from Kristin's Great Finds for your next baby gift.
