One year ago today, our NICU hell ended and Avery Rose came home with us. After 5 terrifying months, 6 major surgeries, and the earthly loss of her twin sister, she was finally in our arms. For the first time since her birth, we were able to hold her anytime we wanted to, without asking for permission, without an obstacle of wires, without constant monitors beeping, and without the flurry of angels in scrubs rushing from child to child. Today, we celebrate our Christmas miracle and what feels like her truest “birthday.” Despite our inevitable uphill journey, we cherish every second, and EVERYTHING about her is sacred to us. We appreciate your continued prayers for our tiny warrior.
