Donated Breastmilk Saves Baby Isabella's Life


Isabella was born premature and weighed one pound, 2/3 ounces on Jan. 9, 2008.

I saw this on the news the other night. I was eating dinner while watching the news--something I don't do too often. I had one of those cries that are good and bad at the same time. Still today, reading the article again, I am at once heartbroke and full of awe and amazement.

It is also one of those moments that somehow still come, more infrequent now, yet, it happens nonetheless. The "ninnies" (as Zane called them) feel the let-down again. The sensation that it's time to nurse hits full force and I don't understand how, five years after Zane weaned, I can feel as if I could pick up a baby right now and nurse. But it happens.

And I wish I still had milk I could donate.

I don't want to summarize the story. Please, go watch or read it yourself.

that's amazing! What a cool thing to be a part of that.

I still get that let down feeling, too. And my youngest is 9. Weird when it happens.
