Thank you for sharing this story. My daughter, Anna Kathryn, was born sleeping at 32 weeks on 21 June 2015 on Father’s Day. I generally dread Father’s Day every year. This year was even worse given her birthday and Father’s Day once again coincided. The month of June is so hard every year and it hurts and feels brand new every year. I haven’t been able to move forward. I have two other daughters that I do my best for. I think like a lot of dads, I deal with my pain in silent moments.
