Before June was out, our life had changed in a heartbeat. His heartbeat. That pulsing I had heard just a handful of times before when visiting the midwife. Now, a tiny pounding against my own heart as he lay on my chest in his first few minutes on earth.
Since then, our days have been dedicated to getting to know this little miracle, who has already taught us so much about the importance of never giving up on hope…nor on one another.
Our baby came just three days after I last wrote, on the 30th June. We are the proud parents of a darling baby boy named Ilyas.
