Submitted by Jessica Blankenship

“Heaven Eliza Lynn was born at 27 weeks October 22, 2008 by emergency csection, weighing in at 1 pound, 12 ounces and 13 in long. The journey began when I her mother woke up three days prior swollen and so very sick. My husband took me to the nearest hospital, that hospital sent me to another hospital and I was sent to another hospital who told me they would deliver but baby would be sent to another hospital. Finally they sent me to a hospital that both could care for the baby and I. Heaven was on the ventilator for five days, I watched her grow in an incubator as if she was still i. The womb, her skin was transparent, she was such a fighter. We spent two months in the NICU. Her first Thanksgiving and Christmas was spent in the NICU. I believe having Heaven so early has made me a stronger person. Many prayers sitting in that NiCU. Heaven is truly my miracle baby, there was no other name for her because I believe she was sent from up above. She is smart, beautiful, sometimes feisty and loves sports. Almost a ten year old.”
