This was the first time I was able to touch my baby. It was a bittersweet reunion after the abrupt ejection from the womb. It made me really sad when they quickly wheeled him into my room. This photo is at Bulloch Memorial Hospital just before he boarded the Emergency Infant Transport Vehicle( with four women I didn’t know) in route to the Neonatal Intensive Care Nursery at Backus Children’s Hopsital at Memorial Hospital. He made a strange quiet, pulsing, shrieking noise the entire length of our visit.  It was described as a distress call by the transport team.

It really broke my heart. I wanted to hold him and touch him and tell him that everything is going to be alright.
