Little Maggie celebrated her first birthday in October of this year.
I’ve been working with her mother for a few months now trying to capture some memories of her infancy. Yes, I know, a lot of children have 1st year birthdays, and the father inside of me hopes that every child out there has a chance to see his or her first birthday (plus many more).
Maggie, however did not have an easy path to the grand age of 1. She was born premature and with a collapsed lung. She spent the majority of the first year of her life in medical care. Her family was on a first name basis with everyone at the rescue squad. After a few surgeries, they were able to restore normal use to her collapsed lung and she began the healing process.
I’m happy to report that her first birthday was a grand event. It was magical to see everyone that had been rooting for her and her survival come out and help her celebrate.
I look forward to watching little Maggie grow up and hope to see her again soon.
