Wow, that's a lot of white space! Your story should be here.

Why not write something now?

      I am the proud mother of 2 sweet angels. One of which god called home. My first daughter Nevaeh was stillborn at 30 weeks. I was a 19 year old mom with nothing but love. At my 30 week appointment the doctor examined my urine and measured my belly. Something didn't add up when they were unable to find a heartbeat. A look of worry and dispare came across her face as she rushed out of the room. She came back and told me I needed an ultrasound BC there was potassium in my urine. I was taking back to the ultrasound room as my heart slowly ached with the confusion and panic that came through. The ultrasound showed that my first child was dead and I was dialated a cm. At the hospital that afternoon I gave birth to an angle. Said hello and goodbye.

     My story had just begun. 6 years 2 months later I go to the bathroom with what I thought were period symptoms. The next thing I know I'm at the hospital with a micro preemie. 1 lb 8 oz. I find out that I'm pregnant, that it is a girl, and that I'm a mom once again, all before noon.

     I named her Raven, she was born at 26 weeks and is currently 14 weeks old. This will be her 100th day in the nicu. Currently weighing 6 lb 5 oz.

    I an here to share my story and to seek comfort in the fact that being a single mom doesn't mean your alone.
