5 years ago on May 26th Brandon's twin sister was born. I don't know how 5 years have gone by since that horrible day 5 years ago. I had so much hope that even though my sac had ruptured 8 days prior I would somehow hold onto her until viability so that she would be born and live. Every day I was in the hospital on bedrest after my sac ruptured and I was still pregnant with the twins I heard her heartbeat several times a day. It sounded so strong. 5 years later I still don't think it is fair that she was taken from me so early. I know Brandon and Wesley have an angel looking down on them. She helped get Brandon through his 12 weeks in the NICU and has helped to make him the strong boy that he is today. I really believe she is looking down on him. I would have loved to see Brandon and her together. I see the bond that Brandon has with Wesley and wonder if Brandon what kind of bond Brandon would have had with her. On May 18th, the day my sac ruptured 5 years prior, I posted on facebook. I meant to write on here on May 26th and somehow that day got away from me. I felt terrible when I all of a sudden remembered tonight. Baby girl, you are not forgotten, nor will you ever be. You will always hold a special place in my heart.
My name is Karen and I have been married to my husband Stu for a little over 9 years. I was pregnant with twins and lost our baby girl at 20 1/2 weeks after I had premature rupture of membranes. I stayed pregnant with the other baby and our first child, Brandon Tyler, was born on July 5, 2008 at 26 weeks and 1 day. Our second child, Wesley Matthew, was born full term on June 29, 2011. This blog is documenting our children.
