Lu is 3 months!

Our Little Lu turned 3 months yesterday. Her eating and weight gain has been where we like it for the last week (up to 11 lbs. now and eating well) and WIC approved my doctors request for her special, and very expensive, formula.

I am so grateful for all of the help we have received from Medicaid, Children's Medical Services, WIC, DCF, and our community. Our wonderful friends, family, and people that we have never met have donated their time, energy, and money to help our family get through this tough time and I am so thankful that these generous gifts have allowed me to stay home and take care of my beautiful Lu.

I also have to specifically thank my mom and my husband's parents for all their support and encouragement and my husband who sacrifices so much of his time at work in order to allow me to help our daughter heal. Lu is so lucky to have such a wonderful family by her side and it makes my job so much easier to know that they have my back as well.

Most importantly, I am grateful for my baby girl, Lucianna. She is the most amazing, intelligent, joyful, and strong baby. Her smile lights up my world and makes everyday a blessing. I am so excited to get the opportunity to watch her grow and thrive. There is nothing in this world more valuable than our love.

Here's to you, Lu!!! I LOVE YOU!
