My first child, Julian Innes (12/20/04 - 12/23/04) died of heart failure when he was 3 days old, after being diagnosed with dilated cardiomyopathy. I gave birth to a healthy baby girl, Natalie Juliana, on 7/27/06.

We got to hold Julian shortly after he passed away. This was the first time I had seen him without his breathing tubes. His nurse, Tammy, dressed him in this outfit and let us spend time alone with him to say goodbye.
