   On Saturday our family was able to reunite with some dear friends, the Bengstons. What a terrific family! We met 2 1/2 years ago in the Scottsdale Shea Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.   Emmett was born 12 weeks premature. Shanna and Eric also had a premature baby, her name is Frankie.    Frankie and Emmett were room mates for the first month of their lives. Michael and I instantly bonded with Shanna and Eric. Miss Frankie is a miracle! She has made HUGE strides in her little life. She is my inspiration! She has Wowed Phyiscian's again and again. She still has no diagnosis but is doing beautifully today. Within the first month of Frankie's little life, she required a trachostomy (trach) to be able to breath. She is also fed through a G-tube just like Emmett. Frankie's parent's were told that Frankie would never walk. I stand here to tell you this day, that Frankie is Trach-less, yes breathing on her own and she is walking on her own! What a miracle!!! God is good. I thought about dear little Frankie many a times during our struggles with Emmett.  What an amazing girl with an amazing parent's. We are so blessed to have such dear friends.        

Miss Frankie with Ethan and Emmett is showing you his good side I guess...

Thank you Bengston family for such a great time! We love you!
