Our beautiful, tiny baby girl, Bowen Leigh Wright, was born on October 3, 2010 at 18 weeks gestation. She weighed 6.1 ounces and was 7.5 inches long. We were able to hold her and tell her how much we love her before it was time to say goodbye.

I made this video of images from Bowen's short time with us to help with my grief. It is a poignant look at preterm birth, love, and loss, which usually goes undocumented.

Bowen is unbelievably tiny, and because of how premature she is, her skin is still transparent and she appears very red. She is gestationally perfect, and so, so beautiful to mommy and daddy.

The music is "I Will Carry You" by Selah.
