Emma's Story

Emma was born on July 2, 2013. I was 41 weeks pregnant and eagerly anticipating her birth. I was hoping she would make her appearance on her own, but even if she didn't my induction was just a few days away. On July 1, 2013 I had a BPP which showed that everything was perfect with mommy and baby. The next day when I didn't feel any movement Britt and I went to the doctor and heard the worst news...there is no heartbeat. Emma was born via c-section at 8:56 p.m. weighing 8 pounds 3 1/2 ounces and measuring 21 inches long. She had the cutest fluff of dark hair right in the center of her head and long long legs. She was beautiful and perfect. The doctors have not been able to find a reason for her death, and it is likely that it was caused by a cord accident.

That was the end of our life as we knew it. Now we are putting one foot in front of the other trying to make our way in this new life...the one we never dreamed of or wanted.
