Never give up on hope.


Welcome to My name is Evelyn. At 19 weeks, 2 days pregnant, my membranes ruptured–which means my water broke. Despite overwhelming pressure from my medical team to “deliver” at that time (which would ultimately have resulted in the death of my child) I decided to continue my pregnancy, knowing that the chances of a heartbreaking ending were astronomical. This blog is a compilation of my daily letters to my unborn baby, detailing the daily happenings, events, and milestones. The main thing that I would like people to be able to take away from this is that no matter how high the odds are stacked against you, there is always hope.

Never give up on hope.

Also, please consider donating to The Carter Foundation. At this time, I am trying to raise the funds to incorporate as a non-profit organization. I want to be able to assist other families that go through infant or child loss. A mother should never have to settle for a cheap or lackluster funeral for her precious angel because she was unprepared for the death of her child. Ultimately, I would like to fund a research team that can make an even smaller intubation tube than the ones they have now. Maybe, if my son had had access to a smaller tube, he would still be with us and still be fighting. I will never know. But if I can help it, I don’t want any other mothers to have to go through that pain of not knowing. Again, even if you can’t donate, please consider sharing the campaign with your friends and family. Thank you all so much for your support during this time.

    (Hugs) I’m so so sorry. I’m crying for you and your loss today. I was hoping against hope for you and your last little one. Just wanted to let you know you are not alone. I grieved the loss of my first little guy.

    My heart dropped when I read your update. I’m so so sorry it’s never easy to lose a child, I two have lost three two of them being along the gestational age you are now. I know it’s nothing that I can say but I do pray that you find peace. Remember in your words to never give up hope.
