Unbelievable story on the news...

Called the "angel makers". It was about a couple's quest for a child. They had had a failed pregnancy
and later a threatened hysterectomy. She later became pregnant
with twins through IVF. The twins
developed what is called twin to twin transfusion. Luckily,a world renowned doctor operated on them while still in utero and the problem was fixed!
Unfortunately mom then developed a cyst on one of her ovaries and needed surgery right away. Hours after the surgery she had the babies.(pre term labor)[V] The twins were both born angels.
Weeks after this she had to back into the hospital
for surgery again due to cysts, well, testing revealed she was
pregnant! Pregnant without the use of fertility drugs or charting or
anything. They were ecstatic! She was followed closely through-
out this pregnancy and was even placed on hospital bedrest. She
delivered a baby girl at 35 weeks. -35 weeks!! Unfortunately,the baby girl had problems breathing and after 11 days became an angel. I
was so heartbroken for them. And I could not believe that a
girl ( girls usually do better than boys when born prematurely)
and at 35 weeks had not made it. Please hold this couple up in
prayer...

Yes, I know someone that knows them personally and I hear
that they are a wonderful couple. I was told that they
have a great support system from family and friends. He
works for outback steakhouse and they have also been very
supportive. Their options were said to be IVF - they still
have a frozen egg; Surrogate motherhood and/or adoption. They are
leaning towards adoption at this point. The only thing getting
in the way is $$[V].

I asked about - what happened that this baby girl did not make
it? They chose not to do an autopsy but I was told that maybe
the baby was born with a lung condition. Who knows? They will
make it though. They are actively involved with bringing the
"angel of peace" (memorial site for bereaved parents) to
the Tampa Bay Area.

Just a side note about the Angel of Peace you mentioned... I don't know if it's the same one, but if have read "The Christmas Box", the statue in that fictional story has spawned a whole bevvy of real statues and real memorials. Check out this site for more info. (http://www.richardpaulevans.com/statue.html) It's very inspiring and I've often thought would make a wonderful project for the PF, except that we're scattered all over the place so where would we put it?
