Birth card for our little girl Polly. Halfway through our pregancy of Polly, she was diagnosed with what was then assumed to be a cyste the size of a golf ball. I guess that kinda got stuck in my mind at that time. Making the card was somewhat of a way of coping with things. We thought it would be suiting to do something in the artwork related to the cyste. As it turned out, the mass that was diagnosed during pregancy as a cyste, wasn't in fact a cyste but rather a rare and life-threatening intestinal atresia which required extensive surgery the very first day she was born. The marble run unintentionally turned out to be spot-on! A challenging time, but we (Polly included) pulled through and are fine now!
