Thirty friends and family gathered with us Friday night to celebrate Evie’s first birthday. It was a perfect evening…warm enough to be outside…the lake reflecting the stars…twinkle lights on and bon-fire roaring! We feel so blessed to have a community like this – friends that have rallied and supported us, a church that has brought us meals, grandparents who have babysat older siblings, nurses and doctors who have cared for our Evie and loved ones who have lifted us in prayer through this last year. I have a friend who was a missionary in Tanzania who tells me they don’t name their babies until the first birthday. While I cant imagine maintaining emotional distance like that, I totally relate to survival of the first year being a huge hurdle to clear and a milestone occasion! This year has been unlike any other!
