    Aleady, at the tender age of 8 days, Nyana is living up to her name. To survive such a gruelling entrance into the world requires great courage; to be poked at, prodded, rolled over and swaddled at the will of a stranger or strangers requires a fierce determination to fight. Refusing the need for a respirator definitely signifies aggressiveness but aggressive in a positive way. At the age of 8 days Nyana is proving to everyone that she is fighting to reach her goal of going home,well and strong and to begin her next chapter with her Mum and Dad. Nyana Rose is as powerful as her name says she is. And as beautiful as her second name, Rose.
    I love you, Nyana

    As much as I love this blog, as much as I cry every time that I read this blog, as much pride, no, not the right word, HOPE as I have in / for little Nyana, I can not help but think that not only are there tiny little angels looking out for her, but some family, either related by blood or related by relationships (marriage, common law, whatever) distant and gone, looking out for her as well.
    Brad and I had to come back to the city for a funeral. A funeral of Brad’s uncle. Little Nyana knew I was coming, so she arrived before us. She wanted to meet her crazy aunt (even though technically, I am a 2nd cousin, not an aunt). So on Tuesday, we attended the funeral and had family time with Brad’s family. On Wednesday, we met Nyana and as Donboy knows, tears flowed. She is beautiful, tiny and brave.
    We made our way home later that day and beautiful, tiny and brave Nyana was on my mind the whole time. On Thursday, I believe it was, I saw that Dave had posted my uncle had died. I am not even sure if I have ever met this uncle but if I had, I can guarantee I hadn’t seen him since I was a child. So now I am faced with two deaths surrounding Nyana’s birth.
    Life is not fair. It is not fair that Nyana is struggling with all of this. Donboy and Karen are amazingly strong for their beautiful daughter and I wanted to say, that it looks like some uncles (from both sides of my family) gladly traded their place on this earth in order to ensure that little Nyana had her space here with us.
    Thinking of you Nyana and wanting you to know, that either here with us or looking down on us from above, you have family that love you and will fight for you in anyway they can.

    Be strong, continue to be brave and fight. Show this unfair world the strength that all of us Brackett’s are built from.

    Love always, your crazy 2nd cousin, who prefers to be known as Auntie Kim

    I had my nyana in 2011, and she truly is living up to her name, she brightens a room, she can make the saddest people smile, she is caring, gentle and fierce even for her little stature. (always petite for her age but solid and healthy). We are truly blessed to have this little fiery princess in our lives 🙂
