Little Bella has captured the hearts of our family and everyone that meets her. We want to share her story with all.

I still can’t believe Bella is using an HME – someone pinch me!  Not the most flattering picture, but I had to record this moment!

I am holding her and she is only attached to the pulse ox!  What a wonderful miracle!!!

From my daughter’s fortune cookie:

“You can’t stop the waves, but you can learn to surf.”
