My First Piece of Jewelry as a Mom
This is the bracelet I had to wear each day during our NICU stay. It was what gave me access to my baby (73181). It was also the first thing that made me feel like a mom, the one thing that tied me to my son during the times we had to be apart, something tangible that filled me with pride.
I wore it way beyond Flynn’s homecoming, until the letters started to fade. Now, I carry it in my wallet wherever I go and on those difficult days when I feel like the world has beaten me down, I look at it and remember just how far we’ve come.
