FORT WAYNE, Ind. (NBC33) -- We're continuing our special partnership with Riley Hospital For Children.

A couple of weeks ago, Katie Law had the privilege of sitting down with fellow Riley mom, Laura Clark.

Laura and her husband, Matt, went to the hospital almost 10 years ago thinking they were going to have a healthy baby boy, a baby they would bring home in a couple of days.

Laura had Josh and right after giving birth, the doctors knew right away that something was wrong. The next day, Josh was sent by ambulance to Riley Hospital from Fort Wayne and had heart surgery at two days old.

He would return to Riley at 8 weeks old for open heart surgery.

Watch the video for the full story.

You can see the next story in this week long series tomorrow on NBC33 at 4 p.m. and 11 p.m. and on 21Alive at 6 p.m. and 11 p.m.

Follow Linda Jackson and Katie Law on Facebook for more.
