Today I’ve invited my friend, Melissa, to share the incredible story of her baby girl Ellie.  From day one, Ellie has had a special purpose, and her story is beyond incredible. Quite simply, you are about to read a miracle.  

If you or a close friend or family member have ever experienced what it’s like to have a baby in the NICU, then you know how just stressful it can be.  Melissa shares how she and her husband chose faith over fear in the face of death.  This story is raw, emotional, and powerful.  I love these brave mama friends of mine that are willing to share their hearts and advice with you all.

It’s a powerful thing when momma’s work together and encourage one another, isn’t it?  Melissa not only shares her heart-wrenching first days with Ellie, but also some amazing words of encouragement for all NICU moms.

We hope that this post encourages NICU families to continue having faith and hope, even in the midst of dark days.  We pray that  families facing uncertainty feel the same unexplainable peace that Melissa and her family felt.

I’m so excited to share Melissa’s words with you.  Here is Ellie’s Story…

Honestly, I don’t even know where to begin.  As most of you know, I had a miscarriage a couple of years ago after several years of infertility.  My fertility doctors were perfectly fine with ushering me back through weeks and months of expensive fertility treatments.  I felt like a number.  In my heart, I knew that there was something else wrong.

Well, my friends, after months of tests I finally have answers.  I feel like I finally have clarity.  I have a plan in place now that will hopefully end in better health, pregnancy, and a healthy baby.

But, I wouldn’t have reached this place in my journey if I hadn’t taken the plunge and made an appointment with a naturopathic doctor.  Seeing a naturopathic doctor has, quite literally, changed my life.  And, I’d love to share with you why…
