On the 30th of August 2008 I prayed and asked God for a little baby, then God gave me Jodie....
My Face may be different, but my feelings the same I laugh and I cry, and I take pride in my gains I was sent here among you, to teach you to love As God in the heavens, looks down from above To Him I am no different, His love know no bounds Its those here among you, in cities and towns That judge me by standards that man has imparted But this family I have chosen will help me get started For I'm one of the children, so special and few That came here to learn the same lessons as you That love is acceptance it must come from the heart We all have the same purpose, though not the same start The Lord gave me life, to live and embrace And I'll do it as you do but at my own pace

Jodie stopped breathing....
During the 5th week at home I was doing the "normal" feeding with Jodie and once again she refluxed... BUT this time it was really bad, the milk kept on coming out of her mouth and suddenly she just went "floppy" with eyes rolled back. Jodie wasn't breathing, I turned her upside down, blew in her face (that took about 20seconds), but nothing..... I started doing CPR (thank goodness I had training), I dropped down to the floor with her flat on her back, started CPR but it was not working. "God, please I cried, help me to save my baby" I knew that if I jumped in the car and drove to hospital she would not be alive by the time we got there. "Please Lord, Let her breathe..." After 2 minutes, Jodie started breathing.. I sat for two hours on the floor just crying. Little did I know that this would happen another 9 times
