Marcella’s First Birthday

Marcella’s First Birthday

Well the milestone of the first birthday has been reached. Wow, what an emotional day. Due to an incident the night before, where I was left feeling unsupported, not by friends by an organisation. I was already very emotional, and puffy from crying. So it was a challenge for me for the day to pull myself together so that I could be in the present, and enjoy and celebrate being on the other side.

I had great plans for the day, we first went  to a Life’s Little Treasures playgroup, which happened to fall on the day, and chat with other prem mum’s. Which we did and it was great and really helped to settle my emotions.

Marcella and the other children all had a great time.

So dressed in her Hope for Accreta shirt, we then went on to deliver our thank you cards that I had made up for the occasion.  So we first posted and hand delivered some of our cards to friends that helped up get through this traumatic event.

We then went on to the hospital to deliver our cards to the Doctors, Nurses, Midwives, Chaplains, NICU Doctors and Nurses, and everyone involved in helping to keep me here, or making the journey that much easier.

There were a few tears, especially when I saw one of the NICU Nurses that help with Marcella’s care. She would sit with me for hours to try and help me get milk, and deliver the bond between me and my baby.  SO it was a very special day.  I also want to thank all of you out there that have supported us with Pray, Encouragements, Practical help and Support.  Thank you for helping make the journey a little easier.

Here is a few photo’s from the day.
