Back in April I came across a blog called Why Hello Sunshine which has since been re-named Here Comes The Sun. Soon after she started the blog, Jess found out she was pregnant with her first child, a son named Elliot Reid due in late December/early January. I’ve felt privileged to be able to follow her journey through pregnancy.
In July she found out her baby has Gastroschisis. It’s where the baby’s intestines stick out of the body through a defect in the abdominal wall. On top of this Jess and her husband, who is in the military, were planning a move to South Korea. She stayed behind while her husband moved there soon after since she is considered “high risk”.
Jess has remained positive throughout and is such an inspiration. She just found out that her baby might be born as early as November 4th. If you’d like, please visit her site to show your support. Thanks!
