I have decided to write you a series of letters because I want you to better understand how much love you have brought into our lives. One day, Sissy will read you the letters. All babies bring joy to their parents, but you have made an impact on everyone around you.
You started out so small and delicate. Prematurity brought on a brain bleed when you were one week old. We did not know it at the time, but that bleed would lead to a diagnosis of cerebral palsy and epilepsy. I was holding you in the NICU and you had a seizure. It was the first seizure I had ever seen. Dad and I were so afraid because we loved you completely and wanted the best care for you. In the beginning we took care of you. We had no idea how much you would soon be teaching us.
