It has been over 3 weeks since Lucy has been home. It has been amazing. She is the sweetest baby. I am overwhelmed with how well she is doing here at home. She is thriving. She is very alert and has started to really cry, which Mike and I are enjoying. I feel so full of hope and love when I look at Lucy. I know our family is complete. The other day we were driving over to my dads home and I looked in the back of the car and saw all 4 of my children happy. It filled my heart. I just can't stop thinking about how much my mom would have been over the moon in love with Lucy. She always had a soft spot for her grandchildren, but there is something so special about her. I'm sure it's because she is truly a miracle. She has changed not only our lives but so many others. I am still touched by the amount of kindness that is coming our way. Whether it's a beautiful blanket hand made by my parents neighbor, or packages in the mail for Lucy or pictures taken by a truly talented friend, I can't find the words to say thank you in a way that I feel is adequate. One day I hope I can pay it forward all the kind things that others have done for our family. I just hope that Lucy's story has touched people, a least one person, in a way that has helped them believe in prayer, believe in God. Because she has me believing again after all my faith was lost.
