Thank you so so so much to everyone's outpouring of well wishes, encouragement, and support. I was totally overwhelmed by so many of your loving comments!
I want to write more...but, well...I have a newborn to love on! So this is just a quick update to let everyone know that both Ella and I are home, healthy, and happy. I'm tired and sore, but my husband and parents have been absolutely wonderful at doing everything around the house and letting me just sit and rest and nurse. I promise to share the birth story when I have a moment, but for now, I'll leave you with some more pictures:
As for today's blessing, I am so overwhelmed at God's goodness! I have waited so long for this precious gift, and now that she is here, she is so much better than I ever could have imagined! It was a long journey, but I learned so much along the way. I pray that God continue to bless me as I attempt to be a good mom to this amazing little girl.
Thank you, again for all of your love and prayers and support! So many of you are so special to me, and please know that I pray for you often. There were also comments of support from names that I admit that I don't recognize. If you want to connect with me, please feel free to email me at dougandlaura(dot)ullrich(at)gmail(dot)com. Sincerely, thank you again! God bless!
