My Wife - My Hero!!

The sacrifices Holly has made to ensure the health of our babies is more than any man could ask of his wife. Not only did she carry THREE babies for six months enduring the aches and pains of pregnancy, but when her body threatened to deliver all three at 22 weeks (a guaranteed death sentence for any baby) Holly laid completely still in her hospital bed for 5 week giving our babies a fighting chance. Then for the next three and a half months Holly spent every day at the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit enduring the stress of having three sick babies in the hospital (and all that comes with it - nurses, doctors, etc.) so that they could feel their mothers nurturing touch. And as if that wasn't enough, Holly has pumped every three hours around the clock since our babies were born so that they could be fed only on mommy's breast milk. Because of Holly's hard work we now have three beautiful, healthy babies. I am so proud of her.

Thank you sweetie for all of your sacrifices. You are truly my hero.

Where Holly stayed for 5 weeks.

I don't believe a man can witness a labor or a c-section and not be amazed at the strength of a woman.

Mommy working her magic.
