I have been thinking so much today about how thankful I am for all of the support we have been given in the last, almost, two years. It has been a giant help, really more of a help than I think others realize.
Having a baby born with so many unexpected surprises is so scary, so life altering. We have had people help in almost every way you can imagine. I feel like I will never be able to show my thanks enough. This started with the NICU nurses & of course my favorite NICU doctor and from there trickled down to family, long time friends, and some people we didn’t even know well who came forward and lended a hand. For the most part our support now comes in the form of encouraging words. I just want to say, those words help our forward momentum, they help us “drive on”. Getting daily messages & occasional gifts in the mail, some from complete strangers too, usually appear just when they are needed most (the universe is funny that way).
I am sharing this to just say, if ever someone you know is going through something DO NOT hesitate to reach out. Even if all you have to give is your words of support, sometimes that is exactly what they need.
