Today’s Not Halloween

I know most of the world celebrates a big holiday today with loads of candy, but our celebration will always be much sweeter. This day, three years ago, we brought home Luke from the NICU.

Words defy the elation we felt on that day. They also defy the fear and worry, but nevertheless, when the nurse said, “Get that baby dressed. You’re going home!” I cried.

While the rest of you are high on sugar, I’m high on happy memories of just how far we’ve come in three years.

Welcome home, big man Luke. Welcome home.

    The day I brought my children home from the NICU was one of happiest days in my life! Only a fellow NICU mom can understand that feeling.
