We have received so much help and Hope has received so many presents from so many people and I really wish I could find the time to get cards out to everyone. I will one day...I just know it. I want to thank everyone for all of their kindness, good wishes, and presents for Hope and for our entire family. I want to especially thank a wonderful friend that I made while we were both awaiting the birth of our beautiful daughters. Lisette is an amazing woman and has endured so much in such a short amount of time. Our paths crossed because we were both given very grim diagnosis' for our daughters and were able to share a lot of the same feelings throughout our pregnancies. It was a very difficult time in both of our lives, but I think we both grew a lot emotionally and spiritually. Unfortunately, Lisette's little girl, Sami, did not survive very long after she was born. I was and still am an emotional wreck when I think about this because she was born after Hope and I prayed like crazy that she would be spared as well. I had convinced myself that if Hope made it, Sami would too. Through everything Lisette has been a huge support for me and imagine my surprise the other day when I get a big box in the mail. Lisette sent me some very special presents and I am so grateful for the presents and for having the chance to meet such a wonderful woman. I can't imagine everything Lisette has gone through and then finding the energy to send Hope and our family presents. I am speechless thinking about it right now.
