232 Days...

I just got done watching this video (for the second time) about Eliot Mooney, a baby born with trisomy-18. I watched the video and have been sobbing almost uncontrollably ever since. I am so ungrateful at times for the things I have...especially my family. Anyone who knows me, can probably remember the struggles Todd and I went through to even conceive Hailey, and it saddens me to think that sometimes I find myself frustrated with her waking up in the night, or whining, or having to change yucky diapers. This family would give anything for more messy diapers or night wakings. Just after the video was over I snuck into Hailey's room, scooped her up, and tearfully thanked the Lord for the gift He gave me. I've had 232 wonderful days with my baby, and am thankful for each and every one of them.
