Really uplifting story.
Must I?

Meet LilyAna... my youngest child. She turns 3 (gasp!) on Saturday!! Holy smokes, how the time has passed.

A really long story made shorter - 4 years ago, this last May, I lost a baby. My world shattered to pieces. I had my older two children and my husband, (+Jonathon Pruessner) to keep me from doing something I could not undo, and somehow, even with 3 months a blur of memories that are hazy and only partially remembered, we managed to buy a house that August. With all of the work painting and remodeling and my oldest starting kindergarten, the pieces started coming back together.

As I was getting ready to say, "No more children, please.", you know, have that talk... I realized I was later than normal with my cycle. Two negative tests later, we were sure I was not pregnant. And we had the talk. A week after that... a positive test.

Throughout the pregnancy, I went from scared to death, to resentful, to ecstatic, to scared to death again - because the doctors thought our new baby had heart problems.

She was anywhere from 2.5 weeks to 4 days (depending on which due date you want to use) late to her own birthday. She made a fast entrance with a double nuchal wrap, which seems to run in the family - I had a triple one. She healed my heart so I could be a mom again to my other children and a wife and partner to my husband.

My two oldest children kept me going for her...she healed my heart for them. I will never forget my Mia Cordelia - My Heart in Latin... the baby I lost 4 years ago. Without losing her though, I would not have Lily today nor would I know how precious life really is.

In case you want to see Lily as she was when she was 2 weeks old - here is her portrait then - https://plus.google.com/u/0/107494834634231938072/posts/bKfATtakfXs

Total travesty of justice! The apt. complex should be ashamed of themselves, and I really hope the cops give him his gun collection back!
