• Remember Remember the Fifth of November

    November 5th is a special day in our family. We have written about this before, but this is the day that Olivia came home from the hospital, 39 days after she was admitted into the NICU. We always celebrate today because there are a few things that happened. Obviously, Olivia coming home and being free of all illnesses. God had his hand over her all 39 days and I truly do believe that she went…

I worked in recruitment in Human Resources, but I was happy that I was able to be home with Olivia for a short time before another one joined the family. The plan was I…
