Elizabeth Thoma lives in California with her husband, Chris, and two living children, Everett and Imogen. She found out she was expecting her first child Mother’s Day weekend, 2014. At the anatomy scan, they found out their son had a minor abdominal wall defect. Oberon was born six weeks early and had surgery the same day. The surgery went well, but Obie had trouble breathing. One week later, the doctors found that Obie’s brain didn’t develop correctly. After redirecting to comfort care, they took Obie home. Obie passed away at home in his daddy’s arms at 33 days old. Elizabeth and Chris blog at about their family at Our Little Beastie.
