I've been journaling since the day after my son's birth (while I was still in the hospital). He was born 10 weeks early via c-section after the onset of HELLP syndrome. We were lucky we went to the doctor when we did, and I've finally found myself in a place where I'm ready to share:

Let me know if the link isn't working (posting from a new phone...).
