There's our baby Ellen.
She spent her first 36 hours in NICU because she stopped breathing
after she was born.
Was hard to see her there. She had great care!
Ellen was born by C-section after a very long labor.
When the Dr. first suggested the section
I told him that I never had trouble having babies.
Good grief, I had already birthed 5 (the previous one was twins!) without complications.
I would soon to learn this one was different.
We were told by a nurse in the NICU that if I hadn't agreed to the section,
we would not be taking a baby home with us.
We were so very thankful to have Ellen Corrin!
Sorry I wasn't able to fix this photo...
I'm not computer smart, esp. when it's giving me issues!!
Ellen started getting therapy when she was 2.
She started with Early Intervention through
S. June Smith and Shrieber Pediatric.
What a help they were for our precious child!
Here Ellen is wearing weights on her legs and a special vest with weights in it
as part of her therapy.
I think she is 3 on this photo.
Ellen attended a special pre-school, then Diagnostic Kindergarten.
Each year she was placed in a special classroom where she received the help she's needed.
We are thankful for Special Education educators!!
One year she got a special Boyd's Bear for her birthday!
She dressed that bear in baby clothes I had saved from my babies.
