Our Miracle 5!

Our amazing Emily was born with the biggest wide eyes I have ever seen. Always watching and ready for what life would bring. She already knew she was different, special, and about to change our lives forever. And so she has!
Having memories of almost losing her life again and again just makes today all that more special. I remember when Nathan and I could only talk and hope for a few months at a time, because her first two and a half years were so unpredictable, even with all the medical support we gave her.
I remember the moment when I allowed myself to think beyond a few months, and even dared to wonder about her 5th birthday. That was something I couldn't even talk about, because it scared me just to hope for that. Fast forward a few amazing years filled with her beautiful brilliant smile and bright happy eyes, and here we are.... Happy 5th Birthday, Emily! You are so treasured and loved. God blesses us each day through your incredible life. We love you so much, sunshine funshine girl!
