Big Love, Little Hearts

When our daughter was born three months premature, my husband and I were devastated, but hopeful. There were huge chances that her lungs wouldn’t be developed, that her brain would bleed, that her heart valve wouldn’t work correctly, that she’d develop an intestinal disease common to preemies, and a plethora of other risks we faced. Fortunately, she flew past each of these potential disasters and then some—and is now a healthy, if small, child, completely free of complications and at her age level.
