Declans_Diary

I am just a first-time momma of a preemie baby trying to figure out life after the NICU.

 

My Why

DECSdiary .jpeg

My why is simple. My, why is Declan Ryian Hargrow. Finding out I was pregnant literally broke me. I have always set the bar for myself high, becoming pregnant without the ring and my son's father deciding he wasn't going to be apart of our journey. It was a lot. 


The day Declan was born, a piece of me was reborn.  Declan gives me the energy to keep going no matter how it may look. He encourages me every day to put one foot in front of the next.  He loves me even when I get it wrong. His smile and laughter are the glue that holds me together. Declan Ryian mommy LOVES you baby boy! And I thank you!
