A long time ago, almost a year ago in fact, I was asked to write about Jack's birth experience for a magazine. This magazine is put out by the hospital that took such good care of Jack during his 114 NICU stay. The magazine, We Are Community, is available all over Missoula, Montana (in case anyone wants to get their hand on a real, live copy).

It is never easy to sit down and write out a 1000 word, extremely condensed version of Jack's birth. But I'm glad I did it. I think it turned out beautifully!

The article is titled "Early" and starts on page 20. 

Pin It!
