"Listen to the mustn'ts, child. Listen to the don'ts. Listen to the shouldn'ts, the impossibles, the won'ts. Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me... Anything can happen, child. Anything can be." - Shel Silverstein

Dear NICU Nurse...

I came across this blog post and I felt I had to re-post here.  I want to remember the words this blogger wrote.  They come from my heart as well.

Please read.  It will touch your heart, even if you've never 
experienced the NICU firsthand.

And here's a current picture of our sweet Rissa Roo, at six and 
a half years old and in the 1st grade.  
In case anyone out there is still reading and we're not friends 
on Facebook.  She's growing up too fast.
