Here’s What It Means If You See A Child With A Tiny Heart Drawn On Their Wrist.

Everyone has issues that may not be apparent to others. Maybe these problems are related to health issues, loss of a loved one, or stress at work. But obviously, people can't read minds, and no one likes to wear a sign that advertises what they're going through. This makes it difficult for people to be sympathetic to others in their time of need.

But some children across the United States have decided to show off tiny hearts that have been drawn on their wrists. And these hearts represent something very special. So, if you see a child with one of these hearts, you won't have to ask why they have one after you read this.

Everybody has their own battles that they must face while struggling to get through the day.

Maybe someone you pass on the street is having bigger money problems than you are or maybe they've left their doctor's office after learning that they have an illness. Whatever people are dealing with, the truth of the matter is, life is tough, and Liz Petrone knows this better than anyone.

As a mom, she had been candid about mental health issues, particularly postpartum depression.

She had faced this condition after she gave birth to her third baby. It wasn't an easy thing to come forward with, but she wrote that it was important to recognize this condition in honor of National Postpartum Depression Awareness Month.

She knew how uncomfortable it was for women to discuss postpartum depression out in the open.

In one of her posts, she wrote: “We need to keep talking, even when we don’t want to, even when it’s unsightly or embarrassing or uncomfortable… Because one in eight women suffers from postpartum depression or anxiety following the birth of a child.”
