Maybe not what I should have listened to when I drove to work this morning with Caleb in the carseat.
Quite an amazing story – beautifully done by Radiolab – and worth listening to. Of course, it brings up all sorts of questions for me and Micah and Judah…would our situation had been different if we were pregnant with a singleton and not twins? What would our life be like if we had essentially lived in the NICU for 6+ months with a premature baby? Is there anything else that could have been done for Micah and Judah? Did we explore all the possible alternatives? Should we have gotten more than a couple opinions?
Obviously the type of questions that aren’t worth asking…but they are in the back of my mind.
Along with the realization that for some people…their stories have happy/happier endings. This is an amazing story of baby Juniper born at 23 weeks 6 days. It’s a beautiful story of one couple and their journey. You can also read the initial stories that were in the Tampa Bay Times, written by the mother Kelley Benham, here.
