Happy Birthday, Love Reagan

One year ago this day sweet little Reagan made her way into this world and surprised us all with her extra chromosome.
12 months and a fixed heart later she has grown a little and learned a lot.  She has opened our eyes to a whole new world and given us the opportunity to grow.
I was planning on writing a post about Reagan's birth story, but discovered that it will take more than one.  As we are having Reagan's birthday party next Sunday, I will spend this week sharing her story in bits.  To start off though in true Hobbit fashion I would like to Give on her birthday.  I would like to give thanks to every single person who has stood shoulder to shoulder with us through every step of this crazy, amazing, emotional first year.  Every person who has prayed.  Who has provided food.  Who has helped with medical bills.  Who has visited in the hospital. Who has given advice.  Babysat.  Called.  Texted.  You have been there when we needed you and believe me I remember EVERY SINGLE one of you!  And we are also so grateful for the new friends we have made.  Amazing new friends!  All across the country thanks to the world wide web.  And some friends right here close to home.
Which leads me to the other thing Reagan would like to give you.  A chance to help make her birthday wish come true and maybe get something fabulous in the process.  Can I ask you to go check out the Quinn's adoption blog?  The are working on bringing home a friend for Reagan :)  and there is a giveaway for and iPad happening right now.  And if you could share it would be great because Patti is holding Lily hostage and I really want to see her cute little face again.

Thank you all so much for being a part of our journey and stay tuned for the beginning of Reagan's story.  And lots of pictures to get caught up on :)
