Preemie of the Month!

September is always a special month for our family. It's full of birthdays, new beginnings and the start of some beautiful, Fall weather! I love the Fall, I think it's my favorite time of year (aside from Christmas).

Abby's birthday has changed this special month for us. It has become a month full of memories, bitter and sweet. This year she turned 4, which neither of us can believe! As a nice little extra celebration Abby was featured as Preemie of the Month in the Preemies Today newsletter!! I guess it only fits that the article came out this month, Abby's birthday month. Several weeks ago I was asked to share Abby's story; to share what our journey through prematurity has been like. I'm always happy to tell her story, to share how the Lord has worked in the midst of terrible helplessness... but I can rarely do so without shedding a few tears.

So, for those of you who are interested to read about our Preemie of the Month, please visit This will take you to the article.

On a side note: Saturdays in the Fall usually include dressing the kids in their UT duds, so we feel like we are cheering on our home town, football team!! Both of our families are devout UT fans, so I suppose we feel closer to them when we are showing off our Tennessee Volunteers' pride! Plus we just think the kids look so darn cute in orange.
