Off to School

Well we're back into the full swing of school and fall activities after a very relaxing summer. 
Mia missed an apple picking class trip due to being a bit under the weather last week but she is feeling a lot better and has been to school everyday this week!
Today she wasn't quite feeling it and I think she wanted to just stay inside under the blankets. Can't say I blame her as the nice weather we've been having is going to give way to the first fall rains later today. 
Mia has moved up a grade and has a brand new teacher. We're very excited to see all the fun things they have planned this year!

Mia is 6!!

It's hard to believe that 6 years ago today we welcomed Mia Bella into this world and our adventure began but here we are! In the beginning we used to celebrate a week of her life, then a month - each one a milestone for us as we had no guarantee of just how long we had with her. We still don't, as life is never guaranteed, but as weeks turned to months and months to years we kinda forgot the doctor's grim predictions as birthday after birthday proved that Mia's will to live was stronger than anything.
February 10th is usually a big celebration around here with family and friends but today it was just the 3 of us due to the nor'easter that dumped close to 2 feet of snow, canceling the travel plans of Mia's grandparents. Mia's amazing nurse, Rachel and her husband did manage to dig out and come over for some cake.

Even though we've gone from celebrating her birthday from months at a time to the more traditional annual event, Mia Bella continues to inspire and amaze us every day. Her spirit is stronger than ever and her will to live is never ending. Today and every day she teaches us to count our blessings and they are many.

Happy Birthday Mia! 2/10/13

Mia is a Miracle Benefit!!

Now that the whirlwind of the holidays has passed, we have a moment to update everyone on Mia's benefit.
On December 8th, with the help of our friends and family we threw a wonderful party to benefit our little girl, Mia Bella, and the purchase of a handicap mini van to accomodate her growing size! We raised a lot of money and are so close to our goal! I cannot begin to thank enough everyone who donated, whether it was their time, money or both. Thank you thank you thank you!!

Mia had a great day at school today, and a usual she's pretty tired from working so hard.
Here's a nice pic of her new wheel chair. It is amazing how big she has gotten!

Mia is a Miracle!

It is truly a miracle that our Mia Bella is not only defying what the Doctors had predicted for her but that she living her life to the fullest! We are now facing the challenge of getting a handicapped accessible van. We are turning to our community of family and friends for support once again. Thank you for all you have done for us and continue to do! All our love, Noah, Francesca and Mia Bella
