the year of the girl

I cannot believe it has been a year. A year since the day we found out that Lila was a girl. The day were introduced to our little princess. We were so nervous that morning. The first half of our pregnancy had been hell (little did we know the second half wouldn't be so fun either) and we just wanted some reassurance that she was growing strong.
Sometimes I think God allowed us go through such a dramatic pregnancy to prove his healing power. Sometimes I think God didn't have anything to do with it and sometimes life just sucks. Either way it is now our testimony that God uses crap to bring amazing things into your life. That you can get through the loss of one twin at 10 weeks, 7 weeks of hemorrhaging, shortened cervix, preterm labor at 24 weeks and over 23 weeks of bed rest and still make it out the other side. I am still amazed that she is actually here.
I think miracles exist in part as gifts and in part as clues
that there is something beyond this flat world we see.
