|The Birthday Girl!|
Cecely turned 9 years old on August 20th. Every year on her birthday, I am reminded of how blessed I am to have her. She was born early and with many complications, and it would have been very possible for her to have had severe permanent injuries or to have not have made it at all. Thankfully, when she was born, we were blessed to have an amazing medical team surrounding her, who worked immediately from her arrival where she was not breathing to delivering her back to Mark and me in our hospital room. Cecely does have some developmental issues. There are days when her limb tremors are so evident, and she struggles to complete simple tasks. There are days when her mind and body are not on the same page. There are days when her little body is just worn out. But, she is here. She is a miracle. She is a blessing!
