Back after a hiatus


My name is Ellen and I have an 11 year old who was a 29weeker. I have been absent from here for awhile but Share is always in my heart. Abigail has several learning challenges from being early so it feels like being a preemie will never leave us. Last year we were our region's ambassador family so I have stayed involved but thought maybe it was time to get back here to a place that had helped me so much.

  • Hi Ellen! Great to have you back. I completely understand your statement that being a preemie never leaves us. It has a lasting impact on many of us. My daughter, born at 25 weeks, now 16 years old is doing well despite multiple diagnosis that will impact her for the rest of her life. Our girls' journeys can give hope to others.
    I look forward to hearing more about you and Abigail. Welcome back!

    I think that prematurity can definitely follow us. I still always wonder if this is a preemie thing or just my kid. Welcome back to Share.
  • Ellen! Hi! I'm back, too! I hope all is well! How's Ab?
