Hello all - had a quick minute to make a very important update...Ms Julia Faith has shown me her strength and strong will to live again - yesterday a miracle happened, at least for my husband and I...the ventilator was removed and Julia is on a cpap for minimal support...she's breathing all on her own. I am so overwhelmed with Joy.

Julia Faith is 2 pounds 5 ounces and doing pretty well. We've had heart surgery, we've had a terrible life threatening infection, we've had ups we've had downs and lil missy just keeps plugging along. She's amazing, and my love for her is more than I can describe. I spend my days in the NICU, learning how to bath her, care for her, about all of her monitors and then my evenings back there with my husband. One day at a time, I treasure them...pictures soon I promise!

Congratulations on the new addition to your family. It is unfortunate that you didn't get to go full term, but I am ecstatic for you that you have a little baby and that both she and yourself are doing well. Please keep us updated!

Julia Faith- such a lovely name for a wee precious one. My heart is breaking that she had to arrive so early and that once again your pregnancy was cut short and your birth process was traumatic. Oh the mix of emotions you must be having- it's bringing back anxious memories for me. I am hoping and praying that Julia is able to grow and thrive and come home with you eventually.
