Happy birthday Lula!

My little Peanut turns one today.  I am so thankful for her little life and awed at God's grace to her -- and us -- over the past year.  It's been heartbreaking at times, but this is one resilient, thriving little girl.
One of the first smiles we ever got from her after her health started improving.
Happy birthday, sweet Lula.  We love you so, so much, and are beyond blessed to be your parents.  I just don't know what we would do without your sweet smile to brighten our days -- you are pure sunshine.  We cherish every kiss, every hug, every "Mama" and "Dada".  We're certain that God has big things in store for you, and we can't wait to see where He'll lead you.
Happy birthday little Lula!

P.S. We had an appointment with a hematology specialist yesterday and though we're waiting to hear back on one test, it looks pretty certain that Lula just has ITP.  This is what we were praying for, as it is not very serious, and may not even require treatment.  Yet another show of God's grace in her life.  Thanks to everyone who prayed for our little girl!
