The lights in the NICU were always kept low in the unit so there was no sense of time (day or night). Time seemed to hold still while I was there. AJ's little eyes were so huge as they looked at me for the first time.
I spent three days in the NICU taking a crash course on how to care for all of his special needs. I had the privilege of meeting his birth mother while I was there. Together we visited and rocked the little man. Together we chose his name; Alexander James Fischer. On Superbowl Sunday AJ and I flew home to Minnesota. Everyone was so excited to meet him.
It was then that our adventure with AJ and EB really began. Not only have we been blessed with AJ but we have been blessed to meet so many friends in the EB community. We have many things to be thankful for. Thank you Lord for blessing our family with AJ! We would all agree that our lives have been changed for the better.
I hope you enjoyed the pictures. Thanks for following us on our journey.
Happy Gotcha Day AJ!
