Mine turned 16 a couple of weeks ago. Every year, at 7:34 on July 12, I pretty much still cry on cue, or at least get misty-eyed. This year, she wasn't even home; she was in San Francisco at camp!

I still remember; her birth was quite traumatic for us both and we both bear lifelong scars and challenges as a result. And, other than the days when I would cheerfully trade her in on another model, :roll: , I am very, very grateful for the gift of her (and my) life.
Mom to Rebecca, now 16 and honor student. 37-week, two months in NICU for her thanks to NEC and meningitis. One month in hospital for me, HELLP syndrome and severe hyper-reflexia. All healthy now, more or less!

Happy 3rd Birthday, to your daughter! What a blessing we are reminded we have when we celebrate the day our lives changed forever! My HELLP baby turns 3 at the end of the month and it amazes me how I still think about the experience so much and how much it has impacted my life! Like you, I am so thankful for these forums. Have fun celebrating!

My daughter turns 3 on Sunday... Do I even need to complete that sentence? You ALL know what I am feeling because you have all felt it, too. As I go through the preparations for her party, I get weepy because I relive everything that happened. I thank God everyday for our outcome, but you know the bag of mixed emotions I have right now. I am so thankful I found the PE forums because you all let me cry and held my hand and offered hugs and made me feel normal again. Thank you all.
