The following are letters to my daughter, Ellie, who was born premature, 4 months too early. They document her many months stay in the NICU, her trials, and the emotional struggles of her mother and I.
Once again, it appears as though you are fated for others to confuse your gender! One of the NICU staff replaced your bedding and the new sheet read: "It's a Boy!" I suppose we should have named you "John."
