" I fantasized that this babys first photos would be by an amazing photographer showing off the beauty and wonder of childbirth and cuddling a brand new baby. I don't think it's possible to prepare yourself instead for the blurry cell phone photos that you only have a few moments to snap as you not only say 'hello' to your baby as the AirLife team prepares his tiny, fragile body for transport to a different hospital, but 'goodbye'.
And you pray with everything you've got to any diety who might be listening that its only a 'for now' goodbye and not a forever goodbye."
While Baby Ethan's diagnosis and prognosis are unknown at this time, what we do know is that his condition is serious and potentially life-threatening.
As parents, our hearts are aching for this amazing woman and her beautiful family. As friends, our minds are reeling and our wheels are spinning trying to think of what we could possibly do to help. All of the proceedes of this fund will go directly to the family to help with the cost of medical care, hotels and food while baby Ethan remains in NICU, and any other costs the family may incur while going through this stressful time.
