I know, that's how I felt too! It was amazing to read, but at the same time, I thought "I would give anything to have gotten that with Cora!"

Well I was happy for them, except for the fact that how the article is worded is bringing ******** out of the woodwork. As in Oh yeah Cally would have lived if you would have done kangaroo care

So yeah. I am very happy for them, but the article is written by someone who obviously has no idea how it is to lose a child and now people are convinced that Kangaroo Care is a sure fire thing

That's how it always is. People forget that extraordinary instances are not ordinary.

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.

I haven't read it, but seen the link posted several places and heard what it was about. I just know I wouldn't be able to handle it.



If only.....

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.

It is an awesome story, but wish it had happened to all of us.
I don't understand why some are given second chances
