Ambassador Family



The Royals

In 2017, I was pregnant with my first child. At about 14 weeks I was diagnosed with severe pre-eclampsia and almost 4 months later, Desmond was born at 29 weeks by C-section. He was a strong boy and was doing well in the NICU, even breathing on his own. Three days later, I received a call to come to the NICU right away. Desmond had gotten an E. Coli infection and his little body could fight it off. On July 24th, 2017, our sweet baby boy passed away. On December 10, 2018, our rainbow babies were born—identical twin girls, Savannah and Cheyenne. At 33 weeks, Savannah’s fluid level dropped and they were born weighing 3 lbs 7oz and 3lbs 14oz. They were in the NICU for 5.5 weeks where they did very well. They are just over 1 year old now and are doing very well. Our journey of loss has been, and still, is very tough, but we want to share our pain and our happiness to help other families that have or are going through the same kind of journey. Every year, we are so proud to participate and celebrate Desmond’s life and our girls. And this year we are so honored to represent the March of Dimes as the 2020 March for Babies Ambassador Family.
