Alayna Diaz's mother, Kimberly Hamilton, and her father, Alberto Diaz Sr. , gave AABN permission to tell this story and to use these pictures. Kimberly attended several Breastfeeding Community Gatherings sponsored by AABN, and she had this to say about her experiences: "From the first day I was able to give my breast milk, I knew I was doing something good for Alayna. Attending the AABN Gatherings helped me stay committed to by breastfeeding goal; I was connected to a group that gave me support. Alayna was able to get stronger quicker and I love that we are able to have a such a special bond with one another."
