One Year Ago Today

One year ago today, I sat in church trying to decide if my contractions were real or not.

One year ago today, the doctors tried multiple medicines to stop my contractions...with no success.

One year ago today, I took my first helicopter ride...and I never wanted to do it again!  (I did, just 4 months later!)

One year ago today, our family began the first day of our new normal.

One year ago today, life as we knew it changed forever.  Who knew that as we walked into the emergency room at CMH, that I would be away from my family for the next 5 weeks trying to keep my daughter from being born too early.  Who knew that the 12 weeks after that would be spent advocating for my newborn daughter and watching her fight for her life.  Who knew that we would spend hours learning how to take care of her.   

Who knew that Abby would bring so much joy and love to our family.

I'd say it's been a pretty eventful and miraculous year!
