William's Story

Cover Image

A long story cut very short, I did not know that I was pregnant with my son until roughly 3 hours before he was born.  I was alone in the hospital and very scared.  Everything really happened so fast that it took a moment for everything to really hit me.  When it did, the only thing that was going thru my head was all the things I had done in the past nine months that surely was about to result in a still-born birth.  At one point, I broke down crying and begged the nurse to tell me if the baby was ok (I was being prepped for an emergency c-section).  She told me she wasn't sure.  Moments later I was whisked into the OR and the surgery began to deliver my child.  It seemed to take so long.  I had had a c-section with my daughter 7 years before and I didn't remember it taking this long.  I was vomiting and had to have a tube put in to essentially pump my stomach as they operating me.  That's when I heard it.  It was the most amazing sound I had ever heard.  He was crying.  I still, at this point didn't know he was a "he", but I knew he was alive.  Then even better news came.  He was perfectly healthy.  I don' think I have ever cried as much as I did that day.  I did everything wrong, did not even know I was pregnant, and yet he somehow survived and the most perfect 2 year old in the world.  I will always cherish the day both of my children were born, but the day William was born will always hold a special place in my heart.
