Emma and Mom at the beach

After I found out that my daughter was diagnosed with Anencephaly my world was crushed. After a few days of sitting with the thoughts that the little girl who was in my belly would surely passed away I made the decision to carry her to term. I wrote down all my thoughts and feelings of everything that was going through my mind over the months I carried her down to the very day she was born and even a week after. My beautiful baby girl was born March 2, 2010 and lived for 14 hours and 19 minutes. Those were the most cherished minutes of my life. After her passing I wanted to talk to other woman who are experiencing my same pain to let them know they are not alone so I turned my journals into a book. No one can no better then someone who has already been there. I pray that my story can reach at least one family experiencing the pain of having to birth a baby who's life is counted in minutes or hours and not by years.
