Hello friends In the last year since my NICU loss I am very happy to share that I am now the mommy of a baby girl named Grace Diane Darden. she was born August 13, 2010 at 8:54am she weighed 6lbs2oz and was 18 1/4 inches long. She is beautiful and healthy and she was born at 36 weeks there was a brief NICU stay to make sure she had her eating unde control but we are doing great. Also thank you to all of you who were so kind and prayed for me when I lost Symphony without people to talk to my world would have been pretty empty and very sad. For my baby may be gone but never forgotten.
What A pretty Mommy!!

My Mom is a survivor,
or so I've heard it said.
But I can hear her crying at night
when all others are in bed.
I watch her lay awake at night
and go to hold her hand.
She doesn't know I'm with her
to help her understand.
But like the sands on the beach
that never wash away...
I watch over my surviving mom,
who thinks of me each day.
She wears a smile for others...
a smile of disguise!
But through Heaven's door I see
tears flowing from her eyes.
My mom tries to cope with death
to keep my memory alive.
But anyone who knows her knows
it is her way to survive.
As I watch over my surviving mom
through Heaven's open door...
I try to tell her that angels
protect me forevermore.
I know that doesn't help her...
or ease the burden she bears.
So if you get a chance, go visit her...
and show her that you care.
For no matter what she says...
no matter what she feels.
My surviving mom has a broken heart
that time won't ever heal.
I LOVE this man!!
Without trust you have nothing and to be your wife and best friend means more than anything in the world, I can't wait to hold our baby in my arms.
