Being a NICU mom is incredibly challenging. It is day 26 for Eisley in the NICU, she is doing great, but as I wake up at 2 am to pump, I wish she was here with me instead of at the hospital. I wish that I was breastfeeding here and comforting her in the middle of the night instead of setting an alarm to pump into bottles for her NICU stockpile. I wish I could hold her and snuggle her right now and not have to wait until my 20 minute car ride later today.
I know that God has a plan for all of this, and I trust Him completely. He knows that my heart yearns for my baby girl to be near me, and he understands the ache. Even though this journey is unbelievably difficult, I know He is here with me every step of the way, holding me up and giving me strength.
Praying for your family! Beautiful testimony in your last paragraph! Thank you for sharing your walk of faith! Such a wonderful miracle and blessing!

Hugs. I know so many who have been through this. The good news is that your baby won’t remember this – all she will know is how loved she is! It’s so much harder on the parents.
