Nella's Story

I'm obviously partial to people with tiny ears, almond eyes and big hearts.

This story is so honest and beautifully written.
Just a warning, it will make you cry your face off, so be prepared.

My favorite part is right after Nella is placed in her arms, Kelle writes...

"I will never forget my daughter in my arms, opening her eyes over and over...she locked eyes with mine and stared...bore holes into my soul.

Love me. Love me. I'm not what you expected, but oh, please love me.

This was the most defining moment of my life. That was the beginning of my story."

love her blog! Yes, I did cry buckets of tears at 2am reading her blog one night. It took me over a week to get my sleep back on track. :)

I read that yesterday too! And bawled. And smiled. And thought of your Ben. Have I told you how much I love him?
