Due Feb 08, 2013 (girl)
My name is Amanda, I am 21 and this is our second child. My Husband and I got married on June 1st 2007. I found out i was pregnant on June 8th 2008 with our first child Faith. I got an early fathers day card and gave it to my husband (to tell him the good news) he was so happy he picked me up and then looked worried that picking me up would hurt the baby, he was so funny. He told everyone at work that day and called all of our family. Everything was going well until we went in at 17 weeks for our apointment. Our doctor said the baby had low fluid around it and we need a better ultrasound. We went for that the next day and we were told our baby has no kidneys (Also called Potters Syndrome) and wont live for more than a day after birth.

On Friday January 9, 2009 at 4:28 a.m., I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. We named her Faith Marie. She only lived for a few minutes, those were the best moments of my life. My daughter weighed 5 ponds and 9 1/2 ounces and was 19 inches long. I thank god that my husband and I had her as long as we did. She is the best thing I have ever done.

Our son George Matthew was born on February 24, 2010. He was 7 lbs 7 oz and 20 in. long. He came exactly 3 weeks early, so we had to spend 10 days at Childrens Hospital because his lungs were not completly developed. It was very hard to see him hooked up to the monitors and all those wires. When they took him to childrens a few hours after he was born (and an hour and a half away from me) i was very scared, thankfully he is doing perfectly now. He looks so much like his daddy it amazes me. Everyday is a blessing. I love him so much, it doesnt seem possible.
