Celebrating Two Years With Lily

Two years ago today Lily officially became a Yeatts forever!!

At 2 1/2 she weighed 13lbs, she could not sit, or talk and was so blue when we first saw her we just prayed God would help us get her home so we could get her the medical help she needed. 

Despite her fragile state, the joy and privilege we felt at that moment to be her parents is indescribable.  She would be forever loved.  Not only by us, but by her sister and brothers, grandparents, great-grandparent, aunts, uncles, great-aunts, great-uncles, cousins, and friends. She had a family!!

Sealed by our thumb prints and her footprints she was ours!!

She is now 36lbs, walking, smiling, going to school, and a lot less blue!!

Yes she still needs cardiac surgery, yes she still needs her lungs to improve, she she still has developmental delays, but watching lily change over the last 2 years has been like watching God perform a daily miracle in our girls life - and we know He is not done yet!!

Happy Gotcha Day Lily Stella Yeatts - you are loved SO much
