Many people have tiny holes in their heart and most of them close on their own. some do require surgery, mine son's s did. he still has a PFO that they thought would have closed by now but there is no worry with that.
If the doctor says it should close by the time she is 2 years old and it hasn't it might just need time. my brothers hasn't closed yet and he is 39.
good luck and congrats on your new bundle of joy
like Andi said she will be followed by a cardilogist Iam sure
