Ten!!

I can remember it, like it was yesterday............sitting in a special care neonatal ward watching our little man being revived OVER and OVER again, praying, hoping, wishing that he would go from a shade of deathly blue to a healthy pink. The seconds could have been measured in hours, it was a long day in our life calendar, one I would not wish on anyone......BUT....Now I can look back and understand........the fight and struggle to keep this kid alive was WORTH IT and I would do it all again in a FLASH if it meant that we would get to share our lives with this magical little man. Happy 10th Birthday Finny......LOVE YA MATE!!!!!!
