Today my friends and I got together to celebrate the life of little Rosalena. My dear friend Rosalie gave birth to her in March at just 25 weeks (which I wrote about in this post) and, since then, Lena has grown from a little over a pound to almost six pounds! She is breathing on her own, eating well, and the fluid in her brain has completely disappeared. In just a few short months, she has become a vibrant, healthy little lady and I can't wait for Rosalie and her boyfriend Scott to bring her home soon! I hope one day Lena will know how much she has deepened my friendship with Rosalie and how special her life is to each of us.
Please forgive the size/quality of some of the pictures. My camera died after about two seconds and I had to use my iPhone.
