On December 4th 2016, at 3:00am, my water broke. Sloan Valor DeRosier was born 2 hours and 45 minutes later, only 45 minutes after we were admitted. Eight pounds 11 ounces of absolute joy and relief. He was a gift of life after two losses, the product of countless tests, charts, and fertility meds. 2 years ago we welcomed that incredible miracle into our lives and our arms.
He came into this world swiftly, and left just the same. But boy, has he turned it on it’s axis since his departure. His birth taught me I can do hard things, his death taught me I can survive them.
Continue creating your own gravity sweet Sloan, you have made a world of difference already. Happy 2nd birthday, you should be here.
