Sadie Quinn Baker from Every Life Has A Story

Becky & Zak lost their first born child, Sadie Quinn, on July 10th, 2010 due to pre-eclampsia & HELLP syndrome at 24 weeks pregnant.

Hummingbirds remind me of my Sadie~tiny, gorgeous, and perfect! I was nearly kissed on my cheek by one my first week home from the hospital as I sat on my proch, there began my love for humming birds! I particularly love the ones with green on them as I imagine Sadie would have had green eyes like her daddy and myself!!

"What has brought me hope lately???"

Well, as my post before this one shows, I felt content, even though it was so brief, I still felt it.

I have hope I will feel it again!
After our vaca, I have hope we are going to be ok.
I have hope I will see my baby again, I will hold her and wont let her go.

My husband has been amazing part of my hope. He gives me such hope I can almost feel it! He is so encouraging and supportive and patient!

I was once told a very long time ago that hope takes 2 things~ desire and expectation! Well I have both, so now I wait....

I'm so glad you have desire and expectation that you will be with your daughter again...and for good things to come your way. Hold onto that dream...that vision. It will help you keep going. Thank you for sharing your small miracle on the blog hop. ((hugs))

Hi Becky. To answer the question that you left on my blog about my HTN... My HTN wasn't really a fore running issue in either of my pregnancies. It was a little more elevated during my first pregnancy than it was during my second pregnancy, but it wasn't really a player in the things that went wrong. Our loss was ultimately due to IUGR that was caused by placental insufficiency...but the insufficiency was caused by a small placenta, not because of the HTN.
