This afternoon, Elizabeth turns one week old. It's hard to put into words how our hearts have changed this week, how much they have grown to let this very small person inside. Our wedding bands fit like bangles on her wrist, but she has become the primary force for our little family. The love that Simon and I have for each other has grown exponentially since she came into our lives last Friday.
Our primary goal this week is that her lungs strengthen enough so that we can take her off of the ventilator. I pray for this at least every 10 minutes, but would appreciate any additional prayers that I can get.
