A year ago, on June 21st we had the great joy of bringing our beloved daughter home!
We expected 6 months of pregnancy without knowing what awaited us, we spent five months in NICU without knowing how and when we would leave there with our daughter.
We hoped in God all the time. And we keep waiting for him to ever lead us to do the best for our daughter. To lead us in this life so short here on earth. We learnt to trust and wait. We're still learning. I never want to stop learning!
It was an unforgettable moment when we left NICU with this aisle of applauses made with such love by nurses and mothers. God put many angels in our path. He still sends his angels to protect us, even when we can´t see them.
We thank God for this year with Vitoria at home. A year of joy and peace. A year without feeding tube, with no oxygen, no dressings or antibiotics in vein. A year sleeping in her room, close to us. Who could write this story with so many struggles and victories? Who could imagine what would happen, but God?
We still don´t have any idea about how it will be our life in the future. But I am sure I can trust God´s plans are the best for us.
If this aisle of applause, made by people, leaving a hospital, was so special, I imagine how wonderful it will be the aisle of applause that Jesus is preparing to welcome us in Heaven. It is worth wait and trust. It is worth believing.
