Through his mom's eyes:
After a stretch of surgeries where he had to be completely still for thirty-four days, Sam was slowly starting to wake up. He was very fragile and attached to a lot of medical equipment. I didn't think holding him would be an option. But his nurse told me I would get to hold my sweet baby. It was not any easy process. But the four very skilled people who put Sam in my arms for the first time in over a month, acted honored to be there to help. Talk about a lot of cords! I'm sure there were some Spiderman moves done in the process. My heart was so full from that hour holding Sam. To say I cried is an understatement. Looking back, I was not the only one in the room with tears in my eyes. Babies are meant to be held!
