The last year has been one of the best but hardest years of my life and brought with it a rollercoaster of emotions. Riley's birth at 30 weeks gestation came suddenly and unexpectedly and through my world into turmoil, everything i knew changed in an instant. Having a premature baby is NOT easy and being apart from Riley in the early days was complete torture, but it teaches you courage, hope, patience and above all LOVE.
It's been a battle at times, but we've come through the other side of it stronger and been on an incredible journey in the process.
Here's a little video montage of Riley's first year. If you can't view the clip, use the following link to access it here http://youtu.be/ZaJS8tH10F4
