My little girl came into the world on Sunday December 15th, 2013. It was dramatic. Very dramatic. We both fought for our lives that day and we both won. I had named her Eva Marie right from the moment I found out I was pregnant, and thankfully she was a girl because Eva really didn’t suit a baby boy.
I spent the first night of her life in Intensive Care and she spent the first ten days of her life in the Special Care Nursery. It was a rough time. She was released from hospital on the afternoon of Christmas Eve, she was the most petite little girl, but very long. Absolutely precious in every way.
