Happy Birthday, Connor

Five years ago I gave birth to a preemie. He weighed 14oz. The little guy fought a good fight for 6 days, but was plagued by too many issues. We decided (at the doctor's suggestion) to take him off his oxygen.
For anyone who has lost a child you know the pain. Connor was the second person I sat with while taking their final breath. While I know it was for the best, it was the toughest thing I've done to date.
We later found out just how serious his issues were and know he never would've had any quality of life.

Today I want to wish my son a happy birthday. I love and miss him every day.


  1. I wish him a happy birthday. My daughter's best friend is going through this now. Her little guy is 1 pound 10 ounces. He seems to be holding his own.

  2. I remember, Amber, and my thoughts are with you and with Connor. I know how much you love him.
