"Twelve years ago....... on this day, in my 5th month of pregnancy, I gave birth to a son, Caden Trevor, who was unable to sustain life.

"I remember many years ago I returned home from the hospital, after suffering a horrendous loss. In the 5th month of an unplanned pregnancy of our 5th child, I suffered a miscarriage. After delivering this tiny, perfect human, my blood pressure drastically dropped and frankly, I was close to death from internal bleeding. It seems incomprehensible to me.......
