Year in Review – 2011

When trying to sum up 2011, I thought what better way to share our ups and downs than through my own words? Therefore I decided to gather a compilation of my own posts from the last year. The year started out with the birth of the most awesome baby ever, we went on to figure out about being parents, Lola began to have seizures, coping with the reality of having a child with a condition, more conditions were found, we felt a tug to move back to the U.S., we traveled, we loved, we moved and much more. While the subject matter in some of the posts is not “my favorite” from the year, it is in fact the reality of our lives. Life wouldn’t be life if it was only full of “ups”. But as a family we bonded together, we have learned to love in an unimaginable way and we have never stopped smiling. All I can hope for 2012 is that Lola stays healthy and seizure free. If I could have only one wish…this would be it. We wish all of you happiness and health in 2012 as well!
