Nora’s Birth Story – Part II

Nora’s Birth Story – Part II

Thanks so much for taking the time to read the second part of Nora’s birth story; as I mentioned in part one, this story includes a lot of information about my own heart health, which is why I decided to write it in two parts (you can read part one here if you’re interested).  I tried to write each story as it’s own story, but I just couldn’t separate the two.  Anyway, I hope you’ll enjoy reading the rest of this story, as far as I can tell it to this point.  It may not have been the journey we imagined, but it’s the journey we’re embracing nonetheless!

Nora’s Birth Story – Part I

Nora’s Birth Story – Part I

Today Nora is 2 months old!  It’s amazing how fast the time is going by.  I keep meaning to post Nora’s birth story, but to be honest, I’ve had a really hard time writing it.  Partly, because it’s so intertwined with my own health story, and partly because it’s been a really difficult season in our lives as a family, and I just haven’t had the same motivation to blog.  However, despite it all, Nora’s birth should absolutely be celebrated, and this blog is not only a way for me to connect with all of you – but also a way for me to document and archive important moments in our life as a family.  So, I’ve finally written the whole story down!  I’ll warn you right up front – this is a long story, and it’s as much about my heart health as it is about Nora’s birth – I just couldn’t find a way to separate the two stories.  So, as a result, I’ve written it in two parts, for better or for worse.
