It’s such a great day today! Mt little guy turned 6 today and as always I am so thrilled to celebrate with him. He is our miracle. Every year I post his birth story and try to raise awareness about Vasa Previa a little know disorder that could easily have claimed his life. Un-detected Vasa Previa can cause an infant to die 50-95% of the time, while once discovered the rate of a live birth is 50-95%. How about those odds? Why aren’t we doing more to discover this prenatally? Babies are still dying everyday. I think about that everytime I look at him. I think about how lucky we are to have him here with us and healthy. This event changed our lives forever and I’m grateful to be the parent I am today. I learned what was truly important in life and in family. I got a good look at who supported us and who didn’t and it shaped our future.
