But there was a whole lot the doctors didn't say.
They didn't say that Abby is so much more than a statistic.
They didn't describe the look of adoration that would glisten in Abby's eyes as she signed "I love you."
They never said that we'd have such a supportive group of people following our little blog and celebrating Abby's every accomplishment. They didn't know that there would be times when the comments people left on the blog got me through a particularly emotionally draining day.
They didn't tell us that Abby's smile would light up a room, or that she could control the world with the simple "more" sign.
They didn't realize she'd love to go through the cabinets and make a mess faster than I could clean up after her.
They just didn't know how much she would change our lives, or how she'd bring us closer to each other and God. They didn't know that our God is a God of miracles, and that He would be performing quite a few in Abby's little life.
They didn't know Abby.
