The Tsutsumi Family
What is your favorite family tradition?
None yet but we're really excited to start some!
Tell us about your favorite family story.
My favorite family story would definitely be Barretts (my son). Being born at 25 weeks gestation he had a really rough start. Luckily he is one strong little guy and over came all obstacles thrown his way.
He is now a happy, healthy one year old!
What is your family's motto?
'Just keep swimming'
Is there anything else you'd like us to know about your family story?
Barrett is our rainbow baby! After years of infertility and rounds of IVF we became pregnant with twins. Unfortunately, at 19 weeks we lost them due to me having an incompetent cervix.
After another embryo transfer I became pregnant with Barrett!

What's your number one tip for new parents?
It's okay to accept help from family/friends. Being a new mom I tried to do everything myself and quickly got burnt out. It's okay to need help and it's okay to ask for it. You don't need to be a super hero 😊
What has been the most surprising thing you've learned as a parent?
How fast time really does fly! Savor every moment, take it all in.. it goes quick
