In brief: As any Baby..
Any new born baby brings joy and stress to their new parents and family.
You do not mention what type of congenital heart disease, as they vary in severity from very mild to very severe. The level of care an impact to the family dynamics will be affected depending on this. Surround yourself with a good base of support and a medical team to care for the medical aspect. Best of luck to you.
