The NICU changes a person forever. A parent with a child in the NICU experiences emotions that you can't describe in words.... feelings you never want to feel again as long as you live.
I would walk silently to my car, praying the whole time....
And I just knew that He knew.... He knew the words I couldn't think or speak or feel.
And every time I got in my car to head back to my home away from home, leaving my baby behind to continue fighting for his life, one song always greeted me...
Many of you have asked for an update on our sweet boy since he got his hearing aids. I've drafted a few updates but nothing comes quite close enough to the video my brother took a few weeks ago.... matched with the song that became my anthem during the most difficult time of our lives, here is our son....
Give 'em hell, turn their heads
Gonna live life 'til we're dead
Give me scars, give me pain
Then they'll say to me, say to me, say to me
There goes a fighter, there goes a fighter
Here comes a fighter
That's what they'll say to me, say to me, say to me
This one's a fighter....
(The newest software update is necessary to watch the video...I have the best luck viewing videos using Google Chrome. To view on a mobile device, use the top right drop down menu and click 'desktop')
(My brother has been gifted with an amazing talent and has video-taped some of the strongest, most precious kids I've ever seen.... head over here to see a few more of his incredible videos!)
