Jackson Joseph; our little boy who was expected to join the world and our family on June 7th, 2021, choose to come to us three months early! What was a very healthy pregnancy turned into a very scary situation on March 12th when my husband Jeremy and I were told that our baby boy may come three months early.
He is our first, so the thought of things not going as expected was not the most comfortable feeling.
March 15th Jackson joined us at 2lb 10oz. At this time he has spent 58 days in the NICU located approximately 20-30 miles from our home. He has so far overcome a lot, but his early arrival most definitely changed our life and financials. To assure proper care for his time in the NICU and when he gets out, Jeremy and I agreed one of us would have to leave our full time job working in retail. Our hope is to gain support to take care of Jackson’s stay after he is discharged.
