The day everything changed.
The most traumatic day of my life (up until then)... leading to months of anxiety filled, emotional days, and some additional, much more terrifying days.
I look at this face and I am so thankful that she is so strong, such a fighter - that she is here with me. My heart also hurts that she has had to be such a fighter, face such pain and so many challenges, many still unknown.
I hope that one day I can look at Easter as a day of miracles, as the day is meant to be and is seen by millions. To me, it was the start of unbelievable struggle and heartache.
I am thankful that I decided to go to the ER that morning, rather than church. I know that decision saved both Ella and me.
Since Ella came into this world 12 minutes after Easter...
Happy First Easter, my sweet miracle! I love you!
