It has not been an easy road at times for our family but we are a stronger and better family. I am lucky to have a Husband who is still in love with me and who really loves being a dad. Without him and the love of our other children I don't know where I would be now. STRESS of the everyday things with a child waiting for open heart surgery was at times almost more than you can handle. Looking back on Chases first year there were a lot of tears, hugs, prayers, sleepless nights, countless doctor visits, and laughter. One milestone after another and a heart full of dreams for his future. Pride in his dads eye, tenderness in hands that where as big as Chase and falling in love with my husband all over again. Finding strength from God knows where in hard times and thanking Him for all of the small things. Thanking Him for the big smile Chase gives us in the morning and the sleepy hug he gives just before he goes to sleep at night THANK YOU CHASE for choosing us to be your proud parents and for showing us what true family is. To my older children THANK YOU for loving your littlest brother and for always coming together when things got crazy and you had to eat dads cooking and you did it with a smile! I love you all,
Mom
