Well.... often new moms share birth stories as sort of a right of passage... sometimes our birth stories are amazing, sometimes just very beautiful, sometimes scary... but Lili's birth story... woah. I can't help but look at this sweet family and be thankful that they are all OK.
I only know this story from my cousin who referred this beautiful family, so I will let mom and dad (Mike and Jess) correct me if I get this wrong. Lili was born after her mom had a horrible car accident. Jess was 35 weeks pregnant and had been in the hospital a couple of times due to premature labor. Things were going along and she was doing her best to take it easy with a 2 year old and 5 year old at home... Jess rolled her car after loosing control and to make a long story short... ended up in the hospital with a broken neck and im sure lots of pain. The doctors knew they were going to have to do a lot of testing on Jess so they decided they would take baby Lili early or not.
Lili was born at a little over 6 lbs... thankfully! And didn't suffer any trauma from the accident. Her siblings were also just fine... praise GOD.
I had the opportuntity today to go over and get some shots of baby Lili and her siblings. Lili is doing great and mom is hanging in there. Jess has a broken neck and also a fractured vertebre.... can you imagine having a new baby a 2 and 5 year old and being stuck in a neck brace and soft halo... yeah it's gotta be tough, but seem to be doing very well despite the obvious tough stuff they are having to go through.
Lili, Parker, Emma, Jess, & Mike... I admire all of you for your courage and tenacity to endure the tough times you are going through right now. If there is anything we can do for you, please just let us know. Lili is absolutely wonderful! Enjoy your sneak peek!
