7 months ago I lived this exact same story with one of my own dear friends. The strange silence after the scheduled c-section. The nicu. The first time i saw her little face and fell so desperately in love with her. Reese's story is a bit different, but the shock, grief of lost dreams and deep, deep love and fierce protection is all the same. I didn't think I would cry. I just went through this in real life and get to play with a juicy fat happy little 7 month old every week. But i did. I remember those emotions.The good and the bad.
Beautiful story. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for sharing that, Ash. Do you know Kelle? Such a beautiful story. And yes, I did cry. A lot.

Thank you for posting this. What a truly incredibly story of raw emotions and truth over a painful subject. But what an ADORABLE baby she is. I mean, she's just precious. I couldn't imagine going through that, but I guarantee she will touch so many lives. They are a cute family, I'm totally going to follow this blog! And yes, I cried, too. A lot.

My aunt sent me this link when I was pregnant with Olivia. Add the pregnancy induced hormones and I was a blubbering mess. I really like the way she writes. It really put a different perspective on the matter. Oddly, it made me scared yet at ease at the same time.

I thought it might be a link to Enjoying the Small Things! I found that blog a while ago and it is very moving, I am glad to have found it. It must be especially poignant to read that stories having recently given birth.

btw the birth story did have me in tears so I failed the dare!
