Presidents day .... our holland anniversary
5 years ago today (presidents day) this is what we were doing.... i was getting jelly smeared all over my belly by a weak and unsure ultrasound tech who quickly escaped our wondering eyes for a real doc. it was apparent to me pretty quickly that something was wrong with saylor, but i had known that all along. Dr glen Schimmer broke the news that saylor had spina bifida, and many other deformities. this ultrasound image capturing those moments in still form is a priceless posession of ours, a ticket to holland, one we would never ever trade for any other place anywhere in the galaxy! i am just so grateful that we were sent a "perfect" one and that 5 years later she is still a perfect part of our lives. no doubt, this is a life for all of us in this little family that is challenging, but we are still up to it!
what lies ahead of you, and what lies behind you, are nothing compared to what lies within you!
