As we left the hospital yesterday, drove home and walked into our house, Abbi and I had to take a moment and actually realize the one thing we tirelessly fought for over the past 5 years finally became a reality. It was surreal. So many of you have been part of this journey with us, through the heartache, pain and now joy. Abbi and I want to say Thank You for the endless support; words will never describe what it meant to us, your love gave us the strength to continue pushing forward.
So without further ado, meet Hope Hanna Macdonald, born May 8th, 6 lbs 14 oz and 20 inches long. She already has all of us wrapped around her finger!
And in the spirit of Hope’s birth I also wanted to share a quick story with you from the hospital to always remind you that age does not define you.
I was standing in the elevator covered with balloons Hunter bought for his new baby sister and we were joking how I will be 60 years old when Hope goes to prom. Then a kind spirited nurse, who over heard our conversation, leaned over and said “Age is just a number, your passion for life defines your real age”. It was such a refreshing moment and inspired me to share a quote with you today. Please pass it on to all your friends hung up on the number of years their alive, rather than the quality of years they live.
