A week or so before we left for Utah I was able to perform a service for a very sweet family that I had randomly run into. There as a link from my blog to hers and I followed it. Then I saw a bunch of random stuff for fundraisers after I found her blog.
Jennie ( the mom) was diagnosed with placenta previa AND placenta acreta. Not only was she at risk for losing her son, this was her ONLY son. She has 5 girls. She was put on hospital bed rest for a LONG time. ( I think 8 weeks)
She knew she would deliver early and she did. Her son was in the NICU. I offered to take some NICU photos. For those that know me, I am NOT the best at the NICU and was not sure what possessed me to take them. But it was so healing to me. I realized that I can do hard things
Here are some of my favorite photos.
*Disclaimer: PLEASE do not steal these photos. They belong to me and Jennie. If you want to use them for any reason, please contact me at Nancy.firstname.lastname@example.org*
This was such a great experience for me and will probably add it to my list of things to offer. I hope you enjoy.
Oh and one a NICU mom always one. It almost felt like I was back in a time and I knew what I needed to do. I think they turned out pretty decent. You?
Next up: IEP and DDD. what a LONG day!
