He was so strong until 32.5 weeks, when my water broke. Unfortunately his little heart could not handle the stress of labor and he was born still on March 12, 2014 at 3:14pm, 2 lbs 12 oz 15 1/3 inches long. It was the hardest day of our lives but were surrounded by our immediate family and a hospital full of the kindest souls we've had the pleasure of meeting. With all of the challenges stacked against him, Oliver was a little fighter and made it further than anticipated. And he was so handsome! As parents who were routing for him, we could not have been more proud.
For me personally, this experience has been so humbling and has made me reevaluate my priorities in life. Making these diapers, hats and blankets with the help and support of friends and family has been very healing and I'm so happy to have a way to not only thank Evergreen and bless other hospitals and families in the future, but to honor my son's memory in such a way.
Oliver, I love you son and until we meet again.... "... I hold you in my heart..." (Philippians 1:7)" Kim, angel mother to Oliver
