It's not everyday that you get to meet someone who makes a huge impact on your life. She happened to come in the tiniest package, too. Lorelei was born when her mommy was just 23 weeks pregnant. That's right. She was 17 weeks early. Weighing in at just 1lb 4 ounces and 12 inches long. I. CAN'T. IMAGINE.
I had the pleasure of meeting Lorelei and her mama at her ONE YEAR photos. She made it through her first year, and that was quite a huge accomplishment. Lorelei was absolutely made with a purpose. Her strength is evident. Her beauty is radiating. She looks just like her mama, too!
