Remembering two years ago… a preemie victory!

Winter and snow and howling winds have come again to this part of the country. Sunday the temperature reached 50 degrees. By Monday noon it was 13*. Brrrr. This morning it is down to 6* with a wind chill of -9. Double Brrr!


Two years ago (yesterday), we brought our tiny preemie home from the hospital. The two hour drive was made incredibly trying, as it was a huge snowstorm that day, too! I remember it vividly, and likely always will. But God protected us and we made it home safely.

Today, Reata is a thriving, healthy two-year-old. Developing quite a sassy personality as well, I might add! 😉 We all adore her. I am thankful for the mercy of God to protect her life. She has no health problems, is above normal height, and loves BEEF! A true ranch kid. :)

    Kay, she was absolutely breathtaking as a baby & is today, too. Wow! What an encouragement to those with preemie babes to see this beautiful, strong, big girl! You are a tremendous mom!
