With the deepest sigh of relief, I'm proud to say I'm back home, putting the pieces of our family back together. Although I'm not doing it alone. To say Shawn deserves husband/dad of the year award is an understatement. He deserves the award into infinity.
The support from family and friends has been humbling, and a blessing. I never once had to worry about my kids' care. We had someone mow our yard in a circle pattern, a friend brush my hair and do backrub, food brimming over in our freezer, round-the-clock childcare including late nights with Story, Panera delivered to the hospital, baby supplies and cutsie clothes...we wouldn't have made it through the ordeal with out every single person's loving, selfless contributions.
When I find time and strength to recap the days since Story's birth, I will.
For now, I rest. And praise Jesus. He is always good.
