This post should really be called 73,245,412 Reasons Why I Love Texas Children’s Hospital.
A few weeks ago I got an email from a coordinator I work with quite a bit at Texas Children’s on special projects. She asked me if I would share Jenna with a group of clinicians one afternoon to better the end-of-life care they deliver for families at Texas Children’s. I don’t even think I had to stop and think about my answer. I zipped her an email with a hasty reply,”Yes! I would be honored to!!”
About a week later Amy texted me that she had some awesome news.
I waitied (impatiently) for her to get off of work to tell me already.
When she finally called me she told me that she was invited to share her daughter Nevaeh… with another mama named Fran.
The hospital had no idea we even knew each other!
Coincidence? I think not. We all found lucky pennies this afternoon too while walking back to the car. So crazy. The entire afternoon was divinely orchestrated and just thinking about it sends chills over me.
I think having Amy there definitely calmed my nerves, and helped me to focus on not only sharing Jenna’s story but delivering our story in a way that it could benefit families enduring the loss of a baby in the future.
I pretty much love her hospital. Had to brag on them a bit tonight.
