Valentine's Day is over, but a group of special kids is still feeling the love.

A Valentine's Party was held Saturday at the Children's Hospital for children with congenital heart disease.

They are all part of the "Mended Little Hearts" support group. It's a national group of families affected by heart defects, and the Oklahoma City chapter is a close knit group.

"So the online support is invaluable that we can go on, post to Facebook, encourage each other," Lisa Fiest said.

Saturday's event featured face painting and crafts for the kids, and spending time with pet therapy dogs.
