August 17th, is the day we got to bring Abigail home from the hospital after being in the N.I.C.U. for 8 weeks! It's a date I'll never forget! So, to celebrate the 3rd anniversary of bringing my daughter home, here are some pictures of the day we brought our precious baby girl home! Although it was difficult while Abigail was in the N.I.C.U., the time really went by fast!
A few weeks ago, I was watching a show on the discovery health channel called N.I.C.U. & there was a baby girl on there who was born about the same weight as Abigail with the same heart condition. However, the little girl on the show had to have the open heart surgery to repair her PDA while she weighed less than 2 lbs.! As I sat there watching this show, I had tears rolling down my face because I could have been in that situation sending my tiny baby off to have open heart surgery. I'm so thankful that God was in control & gave Abigail the strength to thrive despite the PDA. It was God who allowed her to thrive & grow. Thank you God for not giving me more than I could handle at the time Abigail was born too soon! Thank you God for my precious gift from you! My prayer for Abigail is that she will come to know you at a young age!
Abigail 4 lbs. 3 oz.!
