Hope

Today my life is filled with hope. Today is a historic day. A wonderful day. Our country inaugurated it's first African American president. Almost 46 years ago Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. gave his infamous "I Have a Dream" speech. I'm SO proud of our nation. I have hope for the future of our nation. The future of my fellow citizens. The future of our world.

This is not the only reason my day is filled with hope. I have more hope for Emmy. Tomorrow is a HUGE day for us. This is the culmination of what we have been waiting for since we found out about all of her medical issues. Tomorrow is the day that she starts a colostomy bag free life. I cannot tell you how excited we are in our house. There are no words to describe how we are feeling right now. I'm SO excited for what the future holds.

So I will end today's post with a picture of Emmy's last ever bag change. The end of an era, and the beginning of a whole new way of life.
