故事分享- My Power我的能量
“My son, my first child, was born at 24 weeks weighing 1lb 4oz. He spent 121 days in the NICU. In those 121 days, that 1lb 4oz baby changed my life forever. To have a 6 month pregnancy the thought of having our first child was just beginning to sink in before we heard the words, 'Your son is in trouble, you and him will die if we don’t take him now,' was earth shattering. You have very little control or power in these situations. I waited 2 weeks before being able to hold my son for the 1st time & even then doctors weren’t happy we got him out of his incubator. I found my power in pumping. My husband found his power in encouraging me to pump & helping me make time to do so. We gained strength watching our son grow each day, counting grams and ounces. Our son is now 16 month and as our special care doctor puts it he’s a high achiever in his development. I say he’s all boy. He’s loving, funny, smart and so handsome. We are incredibly blessed. We know that every life is a gift and not a guarantee. We pray for babies & families in the NICU in hopes all babies go home as soon as possible as healthy as possible.” – Ashley T.
