It has been five amazing years since Beth came home from being in the NICU for 90 days. We recognize Beth-day as the real celebration of her life since her actual birthday was a scary and difficult day. Each year, our life continues traveling down a path of normal-cy and we are so happy to be an average family doing average things. But on May 1, we have to pause and recognize the miracle of Beth's life.
We celebrated our first Beth-day without everyone together. Elliott is on a comp soccer team so he and Daddy were in Manteca all day (three games on one day!). Beth and I went shopping together and then had dinner with my nephews and their adorable girlfriends, my brother and his wife, and God-mother, Carol (who played a major role in Beth's survival and keeping me sane through the hospital ordeal).
An extra special "THANK YOU GOD!" is cheered by all for His clear hand in saving Beth.
