Goodness... that picture right after birth just takes your breath away. Her little legs don't even extend past mommy's hand.

They mention that she had issues with BP and placental function... wonder if it was pre-e?

Beautiful baby! I need to remember to NOT read the comments at the bottom of stories like that. People are just sad and cruel sometimes.
