Congratulations! Im sorry everything didnt work out as it probably should have, but im sure she will grow to be big and strong and healthy. Im sure you cant wait for her to get well so you can take her home! She has a brother sammi right? What does he think of her if hes seen her yet? Good luck. Oh and as for all the drama, im sure you dont need that especially right now. Who cares if people dont believe you, you know the truth and thats all that matters!!

i just noticed this post so disregard the other post where I sorta asked what happened. I'm glad that your baby is alive and well. Wow...How tiny she must be. Sunshine is a pretty name. You must have been scared to death hun.

yeah, the daddy scared me, when she crowned and even when the head was coming out a bit she was gray and he told me :? She didnt cry right away, so I was terrified.
