As a parent, this really puts into perspective how each second of every day is a blessing with our children. There are definitely stresses to being a parent of a toddler, the constant teaching and protection. But at every angle the stress is completely worth the smiles, laughs, cute antics, milestones and them telling you “love you”. As a NICU parent, it is hard not to have some retrospective that Isabella could have not made it through her bowel surgeries and that our first child wouldn’t be on this earth to impart so much joy in our lives. In this point of view BLESSINGS is an understatement in our household. Both Zach and Bella are amazing children that bring an unbelievable amount of light into our lives. I love watching Zach run, it is one of the cutest things I have ever seen. Watching Bella dance and sing is music to my heart. God works in ways that sometimes seem harsh at first, but constant faith in His plan brings us through those harsh moments, stronger on the other side even. Please help our family in praying for the Canahuati’s for their loss, that they have continued faith in building awareness for SMA, as well as all other families and babies out there going through similar situations. As our family knows first-hand, the power of prayer is an awesome thing!!! Love, peace, and the power of the Lord be with all of you!!!
Here are Zach and Bella being their SUPER cute selves:
