MY PARENTS CHOSE THIS NAME BECAUSE: They liked it. Heidi is a lovely and uncommon baby name and Evelyn is my great grandmother's middle name.

PARENTS' WISH OR ADVICE: "The purpose of life is to listen - to yourself, to your neighbor, to your world, and to God...and, when the time comes, to respond in as helpful a way as you can find...from within and without." - Fred Rogers

SOMETHING SPECIAL: Mom and Dad walked to the hospital on a cool December night, and you burst into this world less than 24 hours later.
