Lucky Week 17- June 17th

Dear Friends and Family,
I can’t wait until Sunday to share the news!
After after being in the hospital for 118 days, we are overwhelmed with joy to finally have our sweet little baby home with us. He is a Miracle, he his a Fighter, and he is the sweetest, most lovable little being we could ever imagine. πŸ˜πŸ‘ΌπŸΌπŸ˜Œ

Here we are on Wed, the moment we dreamed of for so long. BRINGING our baby home!

But first we got to do an overnight with him in the hospital for practice. We’re just so giddy he’s out of the NICU in this pic! No cords attached!

And the next day- I survived the night!… on 2 hours of sleep..(I sent Kirky home for Zzzz since um, that hospital bed wasn’t going to sleep two)

As for Charlie, he has already been the best big brother. It’s as if he’s known and loved AC all this time we’ve been visiting him the hospital.

Thank YOU,Β  family and friends, old and new, for sharing this journey with us. It has been cathartic and meaningful for me to write these weekly recaps, and I will compile them into a book for Alden someday.
Your support, love, care packages, messages, and simply being there on the other end of these emails has uplifted us more than you will ever know. Really, I can’t thank you enough. πŸ˜ͺπŸ™πŸΌπŸ˜Œ

Love from,

The Spaldens
