Dear Pemberton Family,
My heart and prayers are with you at this difficult time. My daughter had an amniotic fluid embolism September 17, 2007. She was 36 weeks along and it came on suddenly in the middle of the night. After being transported to the hospital in critical condition, she was one of the very few who survived this rare condition. However, her daughter was born with oxygen deprivation and now has severe cerebral palsy. It is a daily challenge to raise her and still care for her two young sons. We, too, know the trauma that comes into families who experience AFE, and hope that you will be blessed and strengthened in your losses.

Sincerely,
Rosanne
