Day 24

 A photo of something that means a lot to you.
This picture was taken November 21st 2009.  After almost 6 weeks in the hospital, 3 ambulance rides, one life flight to California, open heart surgery, a kidney infection, hours of tears, weeks of worries, thousands of prayers, and one nerve racking flight from California, we were home. I was exhausted, and so was Lincoln. I laid him down on our couch...he was so still. Will and I stared at him, overwhelmed with relief. What a journey. And now we were all home, together. And nothing else in the world mattered. I took a picture because I wanted... I needed to remember that feeling. 
He still sleeps with this blanket every night. :) I love this little man!

That is so sweet! It made me tear up reading it. Children are such a blessing!
