Hey All!  I’m definitely short on time but I wanted to thank all of you for the continued prayers and let you know we made it home!

Elena turned the corner Thursday afternoon.  We were able to pull back on meds and get her out of bed on Friday morning.  The doctor came in and told us we could go whenever we wanted.  So we loaded up and left!  Elena did great the whole way home.  We got home Saturday.

Things have still been rough.  She’s still in quite a bit of pain and moving her is really tough.  She’s definitely a two person job right now.  But, we’re home!

We still need prayer as she recovers and that each day will get better.  Thanks for loving and supporting our family!

This is Elena. Our Light. You can see all the goodness and joy that shines from those deep blue eyes. She loves sneezes, yawns, industrial toilet flushes, automatic paper towel dispensers and The Star Spangled Banner. Music is her everything, specifically Moana, Frozen (really all Disney), Queen & Taylor Swift. Nothing makes her squeal quite like swimming, fast boat rides and her two brothers in trouble. In addition to her megawatt smile, Elena reminds us to cherish the smallest of victories, to live in the present, and to daily dwell in a posture of gratitude for every breath and every blessing.  

More About Our Story

I’m Emmalee, an ordinary gal born and raised in the Heartland. Wife to Chad, and Mom to Elena, Calvin & Turner, I spend most my days ridin’ dirty (literally so much trash) in my minivan carting kids to and fro. When I’m not being a Momager, I excel at self-care, cooking gourmet meals my kids won’t eat and deep-diving all the feelings. Most days, my attitude is gratitude, just taking life one step at a time.
