Grace {Newborn}

“I do not at all understand the mystery of grace – only that it meets us where we are but does not leave us where it found us.” – anne lamott

Born early at 27 weeks and weighing in at only 2 lbs 13 oz, Baby Grace and her mom fought to survive.  The term ‘small but mighty’ definitely applies to my dear friend and her new daughter.  Grace came home tiny, but healthy to her parents after 8 weeks in the NICU.  It seems no coincidence that she was born on Thanksgiving.  Reminding all of us how much we have to be thankful for and the value of each day.  Happy Mothers Day, Nicole!
