Reunited with the fam! :)

Oh I have been waiting for this post! It is so crazy I have never met you but I think of you and your miracles often. This post has me grinning from ear to ear. He is truly a miracle, my prayer is that God continues to work in his life, and heal him and take away the "typical micro-preemie issues"
