I just spent the last weekend out in California with your tante Michelle you knew so well. It was supposed to be her baby shower but your little cousin decided to enter the world 7 weeks early so I caught to meet her! Baby F is doing so well considering. She's breathing on her own and just has to master feeding but then she will be going home. She's been in the nicu for over 3 weeks now.
Over the four days I was there, there were some babies in the nicu that never received visitors. It was so heart breaking. I kept thinking that all I want is for you to be here with us and here are babies alive, fighting for their lives and their parents are no where around. I just wanted to scoop them up and cuddle them and tell them they are so very loved.
Babies that young are so very helpless and are just trying to figure out this world and need and want to be loved. It was so sad to see them all alone fighting for their lives. Why do people who don't want their children still have them?
Owen you were so very strong and healthy and big and so very very loved. I guess you never know what life will give you.
I pray tonight for the health and strength of my little niece and for all the babies in the nicu. For all babies everywhere that they are loved and protected. I wish more than anything parents would appreciate all children, especially those little babies fighting for every breath and feed. I hope and pray these babies are loved and protected. They didn't choose this world and it is our job to love and protect them. I wish more than anything I could give every one of those babies the warm loving arms of all my angel mom friends who I know would give anything to hold their Angels again.
Owen watch over your baby cousin and I ask God to protect her and give her strength and know she is so very loved. She's one lucky lady to have an angel like you as a big cousin.
Love you more than ever and miss your sweet sweet smile.
Your one and only Mom
