I watched another video yesterday of a journey of two preemies…I was moved yet again to tears, and struck by the wonder of it…..How do these teeny, tiny, unbelievably small survivors get to where they are? I was so moved, and I have been so moved by these video journeys and video remembrances of our SHARE angels…….Our survivors are fighters, our Angels are their guardians watching over them with tender care.
But I was just so completely amazed at the transformation from day one, to wherever these babies are now……..I am not expressing myself very well, I know, and I apologize….I guess I just don’t have the words to say what I was feeling……..
This is not a battle I would wish on anyone. I am changed because of my son’s birth……I have learned that you cannot take life for granted, that there is no guarantee of getting a full nine months when you get pregnant, that ANYTHING can happen in life, and that parents are all too often faced with a horrific decision of letting their precious child go.
As I see these videos, so generously and lovingly put together, I refocus on the purpose of our mission. These children are the reason we are here…….the reason we push on, the reason we support and love each other, the reason we Walk…….
With that, here is our video of Ryley. Thank you again Amy for creating what I had only imagined before this……..
