Three years ago today, Miss Kathryn Marie Murphy entered this wonderful world at 1:47 pm with a sweet cry and a tuft of dirty blonde hair. On this day, Katy made me a mom. I can honestly say that this was the BEST day of my life, a day I waited so very long for, and a day I will never forget. I can’t remember what we did last week, but I can give you a play by play of Katy’s delivery. It was a day filled with many emotions, and was most certainly unforgettable.
Since day one Katy has been a strong and amazing human being. She has has made every. single. day. wonderful. She is a joy to be around, and has a smile that lights up any room she is in. I can not imagine a more kind and caring little girl.
To say that Katy has been through a lot (medically) is a major understatement. She has been through more than any child should ever have to endure, and unfortunately has a long road ahead of her. I am amazed at how well she handles her many doctors appointments, procedures, and daily medicine. On my worst day, I think of Kate and how she handles all of this with such grace and I am reminded that if she can do this, so can I.
