Corbin's Bill

BIG news!
Corbin's Bill gets introduced today! The bill has been written up, it has four sponsors, and now it will get introduced in the House of Delegates to be considered. This is a very exciting time! 

How a bill becomes law is a long and complicated process. I myself still do not understand the whole thing yet, but if you would like to learn more visit this page that explains how a bill becomes law in West Virginia. 

We want these politicians to know this bill is necessary, it is wanted, and it will save lives. So we are asking everyone who supports Corbin's Bill to sign up here to receive alerts and updates about the bill. When we send out an alert, it will update you on what has happened with the bill and that we need you to show your support by writing a letter or an email to politicians. There are certain times when showing our support is more important then others, it is then that we will need everyone to shower the politicians with letters and emails. That is why it important for everyone to sign up at and stay connected!

Passing a bill can take months, or it can take years. The progress we have made so far has been really exciting and hopefully our success will carry this bill through quickly! 


  1. I found you on the faces of chd pintrest page. I was shocked when I realized that you were a WV heart mommy. I actually started to post something about this bill but found your original blog and read every post. Although many of the stories that I have read from pintrest were emotional, there were do many times I was just overcome with grief and sadness. I guess because I knew many of the doctors you were talking about, the nurses, the rides to the sixth floor, we even went to the Texas Roadhouse the first time I left Ella in the PICU. Athough our stories do have different endings I wanted to let you know that you inspired me to email the reps about what I now know as Corbin's bill and would like to help in any way I can.

  2. I hope you had a good experience at Ruby, I know the staff were amazing with us. I really cannot thank them enough for all the love they showed us.

    Thank you for taking the time to comment, it really means a lot. And THANK YOU for supporting Corbin's Bill. It's for all our heart babies. <3
