A Nurse’s Wish

The following post is a beautiful reflection of a nurse’s account when a baby’s fate becomes a parent’s worst nightmare. Even though we knew we would lose Sophia, the grace, generosity, kindness, and compassion we received from each and every nurse was noted and appreciated beyond what words can express. To this day, I remember the names of each and every nurse that cared for Sophia, Jason, and me during those three horrifying days. Along with their wisdom and guidance, they supplied never-ending reminders that our Sophia was just as important as any healthy baby. Our Sophia was embraced by each, as they spoke lovingly of her beauty and her strength. As Sophia deeply touched each nurse’s heart, they touched ours.


Being an obstetrical nurse, I am surrounded by beauty every single day I come to work.
