Thanks & Giving

We have so much to be thankful for this year. 2009 has proved to be the hardest year and the best year all wrapped into one.

I am thankful for a husband who loves me and who loves his little peanut even more.

We are thankful for our parents who helped us get through a very sad part of our lives but also were by our sides through the happiest too.

We are thankful for our four brothers who all got to meet their little niece and finally become uncles.

We are thankful for our friends who support and love us even when we aren’t at our best.

We are thankful for 83 days and each day was a gift that we got to spend with our sweet little princess.

We are thankful to doctors who worked very hard at trying to make our baby girl better even if it was really out of their hands.

We are thankful to nurses who not only loved and cared for our precious baby but loved and cared for us.

We are thankful for prayers that surrounded our daughter and our family.

We are thankful for 3 women who sit on our nonprofit board who are compassionate and dedicated to our cause.

We are thankful for Ella’s Halo which is helping us to heal and to use our sadness to help others.

We are thankful for the support and donations that so many have already given us to help other babies.

We are thankful for finally becoming parents and fully understanding the love between a parent and a child.

We are thankful for being able to give back to the NICU; it has helped us to keep Ella’s memory alive and it is what she would have wanted us to do.

We are thankful for the friends we made while at the hospital, those doctors, nurses, and staff touched our lives in a way they will never know.

We are thankful to be able to meet others who are on the same journey as us; they provide us with hope, courage, strength and friendship.

And most of all, we are thankful to have met an angel before she got her wings and flew up to heaven.
