Setting Sail

The time has come. On Monday April 7th our ship is set to set sail. We are bringing our girl home!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What a whirlwind this has been. We thought we were going to be taking Faith home this week then that got squashed- we let go, gave it to God and we were at peace with whatever was going to happen. Then a miracle happened- everything starting coming together on the same day- everything fell into place. The miraculous thing is Brian and I are totally at peace. Yes, there is some natural fear but we feel like the timing is right. WOOOOOOOOWHOOOOOOOO!!!!!! We can't imagine what life is going to be like- for the last 14 months this has consumed our entire life- it still will but in a different way. What
is it going to be like to not wake up every morning and head to the hospital at the crack of dawn- or to just go home after work...... we can't wait to find out!!!!!!
We are going to need lots of prayers this next week- this is a HUGE step for us. We are trading the safety and security of the hospital for the dream of being a family at home. As you all know this is a risk, but one that we know is well worth it, after all "ships are safe in harbors, but that's not what ships are for." Amen!
Brian and Jen :)
