Forever Missed, Forever Loved
We were devastated when our daughter, Natalia Michaella, was stillborn. In the midst of that devastation, my sister, Courtney, suggested I consider donating my milk. I couldn't be more grateful to her for the suggestion, or to National Milk Bank for walking me through the process. I pumped over 500 ounces, which helped my body heal properly, and helped me feel connected to my baby. Knowing that the milk our Natalia helped make has done so much good for babies all over the country has warmed our hearts.
I watched Erica donate Natalia's milk to another baby she would never meet. It was so hard for her, but it gave her a chance to help a baby in need, exactly the kind of purpose we both needed in such a dark time. I am so proud of her for donating, and would encourage anyone else in a similar situation to consider donating.
