This is what 60% looks like


It almost seems sureal. All of those conversations with all of those drs.

The grim prognosis.
The NICU tour.
The consent forms for lifesaving treatments and emergency procedures.
The care plan for everything we expected to encounter at birth.

Could this child in my arms really be that baby we were preparing for? Is it possible?

We were given a 60% chance that Samuel would make it through his first month of life.
Assuming he survived birth.

Today, September 4th, Samuel James is one month old.

This is what 60% looks like.
Amazing.
(and adorable)
