It’s a bittersweet moment for me to read this story . . . for I am one of those pumping mama’s from whom the milk came, or so I have been told. And I can’t take any credit. The milk is a gift, really, from my daughter who passed away 4 days after she was born from prematurity. Josephine Anne was brave enough to come into this world at only 24 weeks and even braver to leave it for something still unknown to us. Yet she brings me reminders of how her life has a higher purpose and that the pain and great sadness I carry is not in vain. I pumped her “Josie milk” for 2 months knowing that she would not benefit from it, but trusting that she wanted me to give this liquid gold from her to another baby in need. And as a mother to now 2 angels in less than a year‘s time, I am comforted knowing that my daughter has had an impact on this world beyond my husband and myself. I’m still in the middle of writing her story down, but this will be included. I don’t know the details of your story or this family’s story, we haven't met and perhaps never will. But I have to believe that my Josie is sending her bravery and strength through that milk to this little one, until his/her mommy is well again.
