My father gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person: he believed in me. Jim Valvano --- While still in the womb, it was discovered that Jeff and Cortney Given''s baby girl had a heart defect. To be more specific, she had hypoplastic left heart syndrome, where the left side of the heart isn''t fully formed. --- Despite all the unknowns, her family believed their baby girl, who they would name Zola, would get through it all. There have been many hardships during this process, says Jeff. We almost lost her, but she is a fighter and has come out of it even stronger. --- But there have also been moments of light. She started smiling around two weeks old and hasnt stopped, says Cortney. She has quite the smile! --- Zola is currently eight weeks old and waiting to go home, but we know that her fathers strength and her familys love will carry her to that special day and throughout her life. Most of all, Zola will grow up knowing that her daddy has always believed in her. My biggest wish for Zola is to not let this heart condition hold her back, says Jeff. I hope she feels strong and confident enough to do whatever she wants in life. --- To all the dads and father-figures, thanks for believing. Happy #FathersDay.
