As I am sitting up working on Kaidence's blog at 12:30am on February 23rd. Mike has been trying to find her blessing pictures, but no luck. Kaidence is sitting with me. She decided that she should be awake as she brought in the big 1 year mark. A little weird since Kaidence never wakes up during the night, she is a great sleeper. She is in an incredibly happy mood as she eats her daddy's head phones. She has also pulled out her feeding tube twice since she was supposed to be sleeping. It is still out.
Last night for the first time I watched the birth video of Kaidence. My heart broke as I watched this sweet little girl being brought into the world and knowing what she would be going through. What a year it has been. We are so grateful for the many blessing and ultimately the many miracles that we have seen manifested in Kaidence's lifetime. We are so proud of her for the way that she has brought so much love, joy and meaning into peoples lives. She has brought us all a lot of perspective on life and what is most important. We are overwhelmed at the many kind deeds that have been given to us. For the fasting and prayers. I hope that we all understand the true power that they hold. The video above is for Kaidence and all of you that have given so much love and support. It is a small review for a big year. The music is from a CD that Kaidence listened to often in the hospital. These songs are very fitting of Kaidence.
Happy Birthday Kaidence and thank you for being your strong, beautiful self. We love you more than words could ever tell. Our family would not be complete without you and we are grateful that we have been blessed enough to continue holding you in our arms everyday. On Your Birthday we remember and thank the family that gave Kaidence her second chance at life. Kaidence you HAVE been a star shinning brightly ..... for the whole world to see!!!!
Love Always and Forever,
Mommy and Daddy
