Because she chose life, Atkins had the chance to make some beautiful memories with her son that will stay with her forever.
“I close my eyes and I’m back in the room with Charlie in my arms,” she wrote on her blog. “I would do anything to go back, I wouldn’t change it because I kissed him as much as I could, I slept next to my baby both nights, I held him close to my heart at every chance I could, I sniffed my baby’s scent every second.
