i am continuously humbled by the wonderful families i meet through the pictures of hope foundation. the robertson family was no exception…so gracious, sweet and loving. at 22 weeks of pregnancy, melia’s mommy found out that her membranes had ruptured and she had placental abruption. after a month of bed rest, Melia Joy was born at 26 and a half weeks gestation, weighing in at exactly 2 pounds. the timing of her entry into the world was perfect-the doctors told her family that she would not have survived more than one hour longer inside of her mom. sweet baby melia truly is a miracle…she is perfect in every way and will be blessed forever by all of the people who love her. god bless you sweet baby girl…you keep growing bigger and stronger so you can go home to your adorable brother and sister.:) thank you amanda and eric for allowing me to photograph your family.
