We have experienced so many more incredible highs and devastating lows than we ever thought possible. When I look at Addison now, I cannot imagine life without her. She makes our world complete. She teaches us to be strong and to persevere. She doesn’t take “No” for an answer and refuses to give up. She makes us better.
While we have been able to enjoy 365 days of life with our princess, today is a grim date for the donor’s family. Our hearts go out to them. There is nothing we can say to adequately express our deepest gratitude for the precious gift they have given us. Before we left for Italy, Aaron and I sat down and finally finished our letter to the donor family. For two journalists, it was the toughest assignment ever.
