Three years ago today, Marissa came home to us from the hospital. She was finally ours. When I look back, 2 1/2 months, or 79 days, does not sound like that long of a time. But then I think about how long ago her birthday was and it just amazes me that we went that long without being able to bring our girl home.

We are going to spend today having fun and celebrating Marissa. I think we'll go back to that park we visited on Friday. And yes, I will remember the sunscreen for all of us today!
I am going to link you back to the post I wrote a year ago about this day. I just don't have it in me to write a post today. We are about a week and a half out from Rissa's big surgery and I find myself struggling to find the words to express how I feel today. Preparing my heart and mind for my baby to undergo an operation is always a surreal experience. But the fact that this is such a life changing surgery that has so much riding on it's success has put me in a different place than I have ever been before.
Add to that the fact that a wonderful family just said goodbye to their sweet angel, Carter Jay, yesterday, and I just can't bring myself to write today. I am just going to hug, kiss, and love Marissa more today and thank God she is here.
So, here is the post I wrote about Marissa's Homeaversary a year ago. It pretty much says it all.
