AWAKE! Remembered

A Year Ago today, Tricia finally woke up from her coma. For the first time, she learned that she was a mommy. It was one of the greatest days of my life.

I just wanted to acknowledge that.

I remember your blog that day (didn't remember it was 1 year ago today). God has brought your family so far and is such an encouragement so so many of us. Thank you and I suspect you will be doing allot of remembering and praising our wonderful Heavenly Father for this incredible year!

Nate, I can only imagine and not come close, to knowing what it must have been like for you during all those days when Tricia was in a coma and you had a tiny, tiny, tiny beautiful little girl.

Prayers were answered!

Love to all.

I agree that it is worth mentioning and celebrating. I remember last year praying with all my heart that Tricia and Gwyneth would beat every odd and that you would have the strength to see it all through. You guys are amazing!

Remembering that day with you and thanking the Lord for our answered prayers. It was such a delicate time for her and for Gwyneth. I just love the miracle that they are:)

Love, Laurie
