    I have looked forward to having kids for as long as I can remember. My childhood ambition was to be the ‘world’s best mom’ and to have a dozen children. Naturally, as I matured, I formed more realistic goals regarding my future family and was beyond overjoyed when my daughter arrived. I had no problem […]

    I knew something was wrong the minute I didn’t hear my baby cry. He was purple and not breathing well. My doctor assured me he was fine, but the NICU team was silent and from the looks they were giving each other I knew that things were getting worse. I asked my husband, Travis (Trav) […]
