My Preemie Power Story:
Arriving into this world weighing a whopping 1 lb 12 oz…. Our miracle would turn out to have the greatest power of them all…. The power of Love…times 2! See, she came at a time when we thought having a child was out of our reach! With determination and faith in God, we went for it! So imagine our shock when we found out we were expecting identical twins! But like the previous paths to parenthood we traveled, this would not be ordinary.
Through highs and lows we found out we would lose one of our daughters either at birth or shortly there after. And at 24 weeks we feared this was happening sooner rather than later! However our angel baby knew her sister needed to make her mark on this world so held on and gave us two more weeks in the womb. Finally at 26 weeks, we gave birth to Abigail our angel in heaven and Leilah our Lovebug here on earth! Abigail knew our hearts needed unconditional love and before passing to heaven transferred all her love to Leilah so that our hearts would never be empty….hence the power of love…times 2!!!! The power of her love through her laugh, words, and cries, she keeps our love tank full from now until eternity!
