If you don’t know who this precious little babe is, than you are missing out, she’s kind of a big deal. Nora Rose, is living proof that miracles
do happen. You might remember her from her birth story that spread all over social media. Why? Because this little angel is beating the
odds one heart beat at a time. If you haven’t read the story or watched the slideshow, I encourage you too. It’s incredibly moving and full of
raw emotion. And now 5 1/2 months later, her beautiful face continues to speak volumes on the true testament of faith.
I love that look William is giving Aleisa. Admiration at it’s best.
Nora was beating up Greta and Gavin.
There were many-a-days that Aleisa dreamt of this moment. The beauty of it, is that she was never for certain it would happen. And it HAS.
Even when days are long, exhausting and uncertain of the future, they are able to laugh together. I’m so glad they have their witty humor to
brighten the “what if” days.
And she returns the look of admiration to her husband. Gorgeous.
Some days it’s hard for Nora to be comfortable for whatever the reason. When they established she is part mermaid, “baffs” have broken up
days of fussiness. It is an instant mood changer.
The kids are so sweet to her.
What a perfect family!
“I will carry you” was the original theme for Aleisa’s blog about saying yes to a pregnancy with poor prognosis. She continues to write
updates almost daily about this journey of unconditional love. There is also a fb page that has quite the following.
Like I’ve said a million times before, your faith is so admirable. In just the couple hrs I was there, I even had moments of panic set in
when it was just Nora and I. Each little fuss leads you to stress wondering if it is something bigger wrong. It’s not like, “oh, she just needs
to poop.” It’s, “OHMYGOD why hasn’t she pooped in 2 days, something must be wrong. What’s happening?! Oh God is her body still
functioning ok?!!” Then she lets a poop shark or 3 loose in the tub, and she’s fine. And things are “normal” again. And then something
else happens and the panic sets back in. I don’t know how they do it and still remain calm, friendly and patient throughout the day.
It’s remarkable they aren’t on edge every second of their lives. Talk about walking by faith. Keep leading by example y’all. You have
already given hope to so many and plenty more in the days ahead. XOXO x’s 10. It was so good to see you! Heart, Melanie.
