I have no idea how we've made it through this year. Looking back through photos and videos today brought us to tears, realising just how far Ru has come. There have been more challenges, isolation and grief than I could have ever imagined starting a family. No one wants to see their child suffer, let alone grow used to it. Pat and I are both physical and emotional wrecks, usually taking on the roll of nurse / carers rather than new parents, still sharing shifts each other night to watch her. But then she laughs.. her three toothed, honest laugh from the gut until she cries. And we remember how deeply blessed we've been, with more love and resilience than I thought humanly possible. We are so lucky that she came in to our lives this year and chose us. To teach us, every day.
We know each year will bring new accomplishments and new battles but we can only hope the next brings her health, us hindsight, and happy times together. Thank you for everyone's support, with love for the new year from our little family to yours. ❤️
