Oh Danelle, thank you for sharing this. McKinley is such a doll - goodness, she's gorgeous (as is her mama!). My eyes are filled with tears, since I understand exactly what you went through. Life IS such a blessing.

I can't thank you enough for being such an amazing support to me through my own experience with this.


Oh, what a scary experience for all of you - but what a wonderful, beautiful outcome!! She is indeed a miracle! Happy 3rd birthday, little girl!!

Happy Birthday to McKinley! What a joyous day! I am the mom of two premature kiddos and I know exactly what you went through. All the elation and fear all rolled into one complex emotion. I am firm beleiver that G-d does not give us more than we can handle and although I beleived at the time that he was testing me to my limits, we persevered and made it through. It does indeed make the ordinary fact of life itself more precious than ever.



She is beautiful...Happy Birthday! My Grandsons birthday was on the 7th.


thanks for sharing, Danelle! She is strong and beautiful...just like her mom!
