Watching Jimmy Kimmel announce to the world that he had become a father again, I saw the heartbreak in his eyes, I saw the fear, the overwhelming emotion. It wasn't just that he had become a father, but he had become a father to a heart baby.

Why I Grieved for My Healthy Baby

I am glad that I have now come to terms with grieving for what my birth could have been, with the healthy baby I could have had. The fact of the matter is I didn't have those things. I still gave birth, my child did come home, I am still a mother but to a heart warrior who I wouldn't change for the world.

To My Son, The Heart Warrior

I know I could have been a better mother, that I could have made the effort and see people, that I could have taken you out more. I was so worried Elijah, so worried I would lose you.
