About me

Introduction After trying to conceive for 18 months, we were ecstatic to find out we were expecting identical twins ! We hoped for an uneventful pregnancy but much like conception, the pregnancy did not go as planned. We conquered obstacle after obstacle and was told at 20 weeks that we would lose one or both of our twins. But they held on ! At exactly 28 weeks, I was rushed to an emergency C-section and we welcomed Dexter weighing 930 grams (2 lb 1 oz) and Max weighing 770 grams (1 lb 10 oz) into our family. However, that was not the end of our heartache. Max had a brain bleed and other complications; after 42 agonizing (but blissful because we had him in our lives) days and two surgeries, Max passed away in my arms on August 21st at 3:37 PM. We miss our sweet Max every day. He always struggled to open his eyes to see us when visited every day and always had a gentle smile for us even though he was in pain. He fought for us until the end and we are thankful that we got to meet him. After 12 weeks in the NICU, Dexter came home on my due date weighing 6 lbs 5 oz. Today, he is a healthy, happy baby who is the joy in our lives every day.
