A friend sent this to me the other day... This validates several emotions I have felt over the past couple years, especially those leading up to by little B’s first birthday. My little B made it, but it was a tough journey. I thought I'd share this for others. So many of those emotions were totally unexpected and caught me by surprise!

Thank you for posting, it's a very interesting article. Having never experienced having a premature child, I've thought about the long term effects on the child but not on the parents. It's a good insight into it. I'm sorry if this is something you are currently experiencing *hugs*
