Almost..............

This week will begin a number of "1 year since" for us.  In some ways it's hard to believe it's been a year since our world turned upside down.  But on the other hand we're still getting used to the facts and statistics(for lack of a better word) that are now included in our life.

  • April 21st = 1 year since we first found out that something wasn't "normal" about our baby
  • April 27th = 1 year since we first saw the perinatologist and began testing for abnormalities
  • April 29th = 1 year since we said hello to Johanna for the first time and began our lengthy goodbye(or better put, see ya later) to her
Our lives are compeltely different than they were this time last year.  They are different for the better(yes I mean that honestly and compeltely).  It's been a year I would have never chosen to go through but a year I would do again.  Even for 63 short minutes I would do it all again.

My heart aches for what you have been through this past year. My prayers remain with you and I so admire your strength and attitude. Yes, we will all join together in His presence.

God bless you and may your day be filled with beautiful blessings!!!
