Grace Kmillah came into this world on 07/23/2020 at 3:05am. She weighed 2.7lb and was 14 inch. She was so tiny and fragile I though she wouldn’t make it. The year before I had a miscarriage, so we didn’t want to get our hopes up. I have been waiting for her for over 12 years.

God has been amazing even though Grace Kmillah was in NICU for 59 days we were finally able to bring her home.
It will be 2 months since God allowed us to see Grace with our eyes. Holy God… the scariest but most happiest day! We are so grateful! We have seen Gods hand in all of this process. Only his Grace has sustained us! It has been hard… very hard not only emotionally but physically. I know how you feel I have been there too. I sometimes don’t know where we get the energy from, especially my husband with everything he has to do. I then remember that God has our backs. I have literally felt as if I am running a marathon. I can see the finish line but further and further each time, then suddenly someone picks me up, carries me and finishes the race for me. We thank God for his love, his mercies and his Grace which we don’t deserve.
Days at the hospital can be and will be overwhelming. It’s not what you picture for your child. Our staff at Winnie Palmer Hospital in Orlando were amazing (take advantage of that while you can). We still have a long road ahead, but I just want you to know that it gets better, slowly but better. Trust that perhaps you have been created for such a time like this (Esther 4:14). Be strong, have faith!
