Ru’s First Birthday

In late March we celebrated our little phenomenon Ru’s First birthday. We had a small picnic at a local park with our closest friends and family. If only I could find the words to explain what Ru’s birthday means to us… twelve months of pure resilience. Being able to see her barefoot, curiously and independently playing in the grass had me in tears of happiness. My only hope is for this next year to go easy on her, to have more mornings waking up at home, growing and learning together, and with many more warm days playing with friends outside or chasing her through the rain.

Happy First Birthday RuRu, we’ve never known strength and love like you.
