Very few things matter more to an expectant mother than the health of her baby. Tracy Beene’s story of motherhood and her mission brings purpose and hope in the face of tragedy."As strange as it sounds, I love it because this is all I have,” Tracy said. “It’s not gonna be easy, it’s not gonna be fun, but we're gonna make it through it.”
Tracy and her husband JD have four children together and are expecting another. The little girl’s name is Nora Kate. Tracy said they got pregnant with Nora quickly and found out about the pregnancy earlier in the summer.
"We were very excited, so excited," she said.
Of course, all the typical preparations began to welcome a new baby girl into the world. But Nora Kate Beene's story is nowhere near typical.
"I keep feeling her move. And that seems very normal. But nothing about this is normal because we know what's going to happen in the end," said Tracy. "She will just look like a little girl when she comes out and you won't see what all is going on inside of her."
