I am strong because I managed to still work full time as an RN in the NICU while going through a huge loss, being pregnant, and a new mom of 2, soon to 3.
I am strong because after threatening pre term labor, and being told I would never make it to 37 weeks I held out to 37 & 1 day.
I am strong because despite my insane grief I managed to mother 3 children and help the oldest 2 through their grieving.
I am strong because even though the odds were stacked against me, I pumped for 10 months and my daughter got my breast milk until she was 14 months old.
Mostly, I believe I am strong because my sister is watching over me and her children, and sends her strength to work through me every day.
