How did you know you wanted the first baby that turned out to be Elias?


I often wonder that myself. I can't wrap my brain around it. I think you hit the nail on the head when you say that you are too aware that things are not that simple. We have seen too much in our time in the NICU. I think that time might make it better, but when you are in your 30's there just isn't enough time before you have to make a decision. Or, time makes the decision for you, I guess.


My fertility has never been in my control (we adopted twins, then had two unplanned--but welcomed--pregnancies). I often envy people who can just decide, "let's have a baby in the spring" and then it happens.

I'll be thinking about you tomorrow and hoping the surgery goes as well as possible.


awesome photo, Christy!


I have 9 living children . . .our 16 year old son died 1 1/2 years ago, and we also had a stillborn daughter at 36 weeks. I've had 3 early miscarried babies, and we also have a child whom we almost lost that has had 2 open heart surgeries,with more eventually. Life hurts, but loving your children will hold you up, no matter what. Many thought we were nuts in having another after our child with the heart defects - which was our stillborn daughter. But the three youngest we have are the brightness in our home now everyday, after many difficult months of sororw. Your love will be there for one or a dozen. The saying "it is better to love than to not have loved at all" applies to children too. There are no promises how a pregnancy, birth or the life of another child will go, but it's worth it. I promise!
