My life was put into a tailspin when my son, Aidan, was born. He came into this world 2 months early, at a mere 3lb, 14oz and 16″ long. My little baby was truly a little baby. At the time we had no idea what the outcome of his prematurity would be. I was faced with a decision that would change the course of my life, and ultimately his. Do I become the victim of his circumstances, or do I become a stronger and better person because of them? I decided at that point in time that no matter what, he was my son. I would always be his advocate, his biggest fan and the proudest mommy.
In the past three years we have gone to more doctors appointments than I can keep track of. We encountered an entire year of varying specialists and therapists, each appointment more stressful than the next. But that never mattered. No matter what any of the doctors said, my son was perfect. And perfect he is. It has been a long road, but my son has ultimately encouraged me to perpetuate the personal good that positively affects all of my family and friends. I have become the backbone of my friends and family with plenty of strength and compassion for everyone.
