365

November 17, 2010: Warren asked me to spend the rest of my life with him

November 17, 2011: We had our level II ultrasound and found out that not only are there no abnormalities that would indicate that there’s any kind of chromosomal disorder, but also that the choroid plexus cyst that was in her tiny, little brain is complete GONE!!

These have undoubtably been the most amazing 365 days of my life; filled with love, laugher, tears, fears, and more joy then I have to believe that some people experience in a lifetime.  God has taught me an enormous amount about myself, my husband, and the life that we want to lead.  He probably taught me more than I ever thought I wanted to know about patience, trust, grace, and love; but I look back with the absolute fondest memories of this year in my life!

Seeing the baby today and hearing that she was healthy, after 8 torturous days of the ‘unknown’, while Warren squeezed my hand (probably to say, “I told you so” :)) was one of those moments in life you want to hold onto forever.

Go and kiss your healthy babies…
