I'm proud to say Brody is home and I now have all of my little "druplets" under one roof... OUR roof! Bret went to work for a few hours yesterday morning and I got myself and the rest of the clan ready for our big day. It was rainy so I hesitated taking them with us to pick Brody up, but I also had been dreaming of the day we would walk out of that hospital as a family... all 6 of us... so rain and all there we went.
Once the babies are released from the nicu they are not allowed back in due to being exposed to the "outside world" so Bret, Baxlyn, Kylee, and Korbin waited in the hallway while I went in for Brody. When I walked through those nicu doors I knew it would be for the last time... at least to see my babies. Our nicu journey was finally coming to an end.
As I approached the front desk several nurses greeted me with huge smiles knowing it was a big day for our family. Needless to say I broke down into tears. Tears of joy knowing we have finally reached the goal set for all families who are on the roller coaster nicu ride and tears of sadness knowing I was leaving a place which I have called home since I was admitted on January 27th.
There were times I wasn't sure if this day would ever come - me walking out with my Brody - and here it finally was. I will NEVER forget it!

Bret unfortunately had to go to school after leaving the hospital, so I took the babies home by myself. After a few trips from the car to the house with babies I finally saw what I have been wanting to see for so long, my babies all together... at home.
My Dear Brody,
Welcome home sweet baby, words cannot express how proud your Daddy and I are of you. We love you to pieces and always will. You have taught us both so much... most of all to rely only on God and his power to pull us through the toughest situations. Thank you for staying strong and being the fighter that you are.
We Love You! Mommy & Daddy
Thank You Jesus :]
