We are from St. Louis. We have an 11 year old daughter and our new sweet pea Eliana. My husband is overrun with girls and we also have a dog named Lyric Michelle. Our family loves to spend time together and travel.
My journey was long and came with so much pain. I had 4 miscarriages and lost 5 babies before we got pregnant with [rainbow baby] Eliana.
I had actually decided I didn't want to try anymore and my best friend was going to be our surrogate and then a routine doctor's appointment became a pregnancy announcement. I took Lovenox shots through my whole pregnancy and towards the end started having thyroid issues that lead to an emergency cesarean at 33 weeks.
It was the scariest experience of my life, and our sweet girl wasn't breathing. 63 days in the NICU and a few scares that we may lose her was a journey I would never want to repeat. Now we have our miracle from God home with us and I couldn't be more blessed.
When I came across your blankets I knew I just had to have the rainbow blanket but I never imagined we would be in the NICU. I'm so glad that by purchasing her blanket we were able to give a little sunshine to another family living some of the hardest days. (see how you can give like Courtnie)

I woke Brad up and called my doctor. He told me I could not make the drive home and we needed to get to a hospital right away. We were terrified. I was only 27.5 weeks along and knew how dangerous it was to have a baby that early in a pregnancy. We check into a hospital in downtown Indianapolis around 11 am where a nurse examined me and realized I was 3cm dilated and she could feel Luca’s toes! They gave me numerous medications to stop the labor but there was no stopping Luca!
