We are slowly transitioning from winter to spring. It snowed today but the buds on the trees promise that warmth is not far away. This year, spring has ignored the calendar and is taking its time to arrive.
The new baby in our family is going through her own transition. According to the calendar, she isn’t supposed to be here yet but she has her own timetable and has left the NICU to go home with her parents. She no longer needs monitors or feeding tubes or other medical devices. She is awake a little longer and has learned how to cry. She and her parents are beginning to find their rhythm as a new family.
