Having Lily in our lives has taught our family that each milestone, each new talent, and any special occasion is something to be embraced, celebrated. Today was Daddy's birthday. The second year in a row that Lily has spent it out of the hospital. After having her first Christmas, first Aster, and first birthday in the hospital, anything we can celebrate at home as a family is a big deal.
Last year, we stood by as a dear friend received her heart transplant. A second chance at life, a million moments with family... And a very special birthday to me.
