Thanks to countless prayers and the diligent work of doctors, today Natalie is happy, energetic, and she loves to laugh. All day she is running around, playing with her younger brothers and exploring the capabilities of her healing body. Her story is a miracle, and her little smile shows it.
These are some pictures I took the day she went home from the hospital.
And this is Natalie today. My husband Jake and I took these pictures of Natalie and her family for Parent Magazine. They are doing a story on Natalie for an upcoming issue.
