There are so many reasons why I love the month of November, mostly because it gives me the opportunity to reflect on all of the many things that I am grateful for. I have felt an abundant sense of gratitude over this past year. I believe having a child will do that to you. My eyes have been opened and more importantly my heart has grown in depth and strength.
Today and everyday I cannot thank my Heavenly Father enough for the miracles that were seen and felt throughout Penelope's heart surgery and recovery. I am deeply indebted to Dr. Malcom McDonald, for giving me the gift of a thriving happy baby. I have such a deep feeling of admiration when I think of him. I will never forget him coming in and checking on our baby every day. He even made it in on his days off. I appreciate the daily sacrifices he makes, to save hundreds of children's lives. What a blessing it is to have had him as Penelope's surgeon.
