The Reason

This blog was started as a way for me to record our, my daughter Luisa and our family's, journey with Amniotic Band Syndrome that presented itself on the head of our sweet daughter. And has turned into a journey of dealing with a fatal prognosis, and the very premature death of our sweet baby. My great hope is that we might be able to help at least someone, if not more, by sharing this experience.

Maternity Pictures

These pictures were taken two days before the final ultrasound of Luisa. They were taken by Lori Calhoun at Calhoun ink. I didn't get maternity photos with my boys. I have never been fond of my prego belly. But I am so, so happy that I have these pictures. And the next time I have a prego belly I will proudly flaunt and celebrate it.


  1. So sweet and so lovely! I'm so glad you were able to have them taken - just in time!

  2. i love these pictures. you guys look beautiful. such a great idea.

  3. So lovely! I made the decision to get some done as well, I don't ever want to forget this time!

  4. Those are beautiful pictures and will always be a reminder of your daughter. Even through the losses, you have an inner strength that I admire. Just a day at a time and you will find peace even if you are never exactly the same.
