This is a page about finally bringing my daughter home from the NICU. The journaling says:
Finally you are home and you are mine. It really feels like you are my baby now. Visiting you in the hospital felt more like I was visiting the hospital's baby. But along with having you home after 5 weeks in the NICU also came the overwhelming worry that I was doing everything wrong! No longer were you hooked to endless monitors to make sure you are breathing and warm. But I got the hang of it right away. It was so nice to see you inside your crib, instead of waiting for you to finally come home. Our car broke down so we had to drive you home in Uncle Boone's giant Suburban. It was so odd to take a tiny baby home in such a giant truck. When we got you home we laid in bed with you and just stared at you sleeping. Finally we felt like a real little family, in our little apartment, all together...the way it should be.
