It is amazing how these things surface and to others, they might say wow that's neat, or shrug it off. Then we on the other hand think, why couldn't this have been us? I am happy for them but I know every one of us would have laid down our own life if it meant we had a miracle like this.
I saw that a few days ago. Great for them, amazing... but it hurts to read things like that, because there was no miracle for me.

Yeah, that's what bugs me. I mean, yes, kangaroo care is really important for preemies and sick babies, yes. And this was an amazing situation, beyond belief. But I hate it when people forget that this is an extreme case.
Someone posted it in my PR and I said, "What a gift to that mom! That is what every single one of us who have snuggled our babies for the last time wished would happen." It isn't the norm, but it is amazing!
Kangaroo care was a great thing for Sarah Beth and Daniel. They both did SO much better when they were next to me, skin to skin. However, it isn't always the sure fire thing... wish it was though.
As the saying goes, if love could have saved them, they would have lived forever.
