Every new sunrise is that new day of hope. Imagine waking up every morning and the only thing that you had left was hope.

Hope that your newborn will make it through another day. Hope that your baby will make it through just one more surgery. Hope that this will be the day that the doctors say that you can hold your baby for that very first time.

Everyday for 47 days, this was my hope....

Finally on that 48th day, I had a new hope. Hope that GOD would allow me the time to say goodbye while I held my child for that very first time. Hope that my child would no longer suffer. Hope that GOD would give me the strength to get through this day and the days to follow.....

Hope that my child would never be forgotten.

My hope with Drake's Doodlebugs is to make the experience of losing a child or caring for a child in the NICU just a little more bearable. I hope that those parents who may not get the chance to bring their child home with them will have as many memories as possible to hold dear to. Finally, I want to keep Drake's memory alive by honoring other babies.
