HAPPY BELLA DAY!!!

One year ago today our precious little girl graduated from the UVA NICU!!! As is with every second of every day, Chris and I are blessed to have this little miracle light up our lives. We were talking this morning about where this day lined up in the happiest days of our lives. We placed it at #2, right behind the unbelievable day of her birth.

We need to take a moment to recognize all the amazing people that made this day possible. Without the work of the doctors, NNPs, nurses, and RTs at UVA, we know that this day of celebration might be much different. The love and care they give to the children in their unit is spectacular. They are such honorable and knowledgeable people. THANK YOU ALL!

It is only fitting that we celebrate this first annual Bella Day on the Lord's day. Our God is an amazing God. Throughout Bella's NICU stay we trusted in the Lord knowing that he was craddling Bella in His hands, along with all the other children in need around the world. Through so many prayers, Bella's followers helped to uplift her even more. Thank you for all the support you continually gave our family.

We hope all of you have a blessed day! May the peace of the Lord be with you!

Here are pictures of us yesterday at a birthday party:
