I Was Watching Oprah the Other Day...

The episode was about miracle children. They showed this youtube video and as soon as it started I started crying. It stirred up feelings that I hadn't felt since I had my second ultrasound with Rosaline. This was when they were concerned that she might have Trisomy 18. I immediately knew what the video would be about only seconds into it. I actually could imagine some of the pain these people must have felt. I must say though, that if anyone was going to deal with that situation and make the best of it that it would be this couple. Have a look. It's a beautiful video. I promise it's a tear jerker, Oprah and Celine Dion were bawling. It does make me realize how grateful I am that Rosaline is here and healthy. My heart still goes out to this couple.



Luckily they are expecting their second child any day now. This does make you realize that even the shortest lives lived are miraculous and precious.
