Yes, Emma's 2 parents have grown so much over the last 4 years. It was not too long ago that we were talking about how fortunate we are to have Emma in our lives. When she was first born....and for a long time after that, I think we both questioned WHY! What did we do in our lives to have God punish our child. That may sound odd....and we never felt like we were being punished, but why did God decide to give Emma so many struggles?? Just recently, we have both come to the understanding that Emma is SUCH a gift! (we have always known this...I cannot describe our recent thoughts). Other children who are "typical" are everywhere that you look, but when people look at Emma they see the love that she radiates. She loves everyone that she meets, and she would never want to hurt anyone. Truly, wouldn't it be a blessing if everyone in the world could look at every experience as an adventure....and love everyone they came into contact with. What a wonderful world it would be. As parents we have grown, and as a couple we have grown. It's been a very long journey, but it is one that we feel very fortunate to still be traveling. Today is one more day on the amazing journey with our precious girl.
