I came across this quote from Bob Marley the other day from an Instagram friend Jamie, and it really hit home with me. Jamie and I became Instagram friends through a common bond of Agriculture and beef cattle, but now I feel our connection became a lot deeper. Jamie's son was also born premature. It's nice to have a mommy friend who understands your situation.
I am amazed every single day by Knox. He is by far the strongest human being I have ever met, and I get to be a part of it everyday as his mommy. This journey has tested how strong Drew and I are, but Knox knocks it out of the park. I'm not gonna lie that there have been days when it is really hard for me to be strong, but then you look at this face.
Knox has been through so much already and he has been so incredibly strong. Is it possible for someone who is 25 days old to be your hero? This little guy has stolen my heart, and is the strongest, most amazing little man. Have I told you how blessed I am to be his mommy?
We have had a great last few days. Knox; as you can see from the photo above is breathing room air just like you and me. You want to be so excited, but you also realize that set backs are possible in this journey. But for now we are taking these wonderful last few days and celebrating them.
