Sophie's 28th Birthday, March 8, 1995
Blessed birthday Sophie. Heal, dear one. You are so loved.
I wish Sophie better health for her birthday and I'm so sorry you're all dealing with this!
May this birthday be one that you look back on and think, "Wow. That was hard." And then you will kiss your beautiful daughter and be ever more grateful for her.
I'm thankful that Sophie is improving. This is always my greatest fear, Katie in a hospital. I will continue to say prayers for her and for you. Sending hugs and love as well.
When my newborn was in the NICU for a month, I thought of the place as having its own gravitational pull, like a planet. Maybe all hospital time is like that. So much love and happy birthdays to you both.
Holding you all in hope and love. Thankful to read she is trending better. Naturally you are exhausted, it's all so much—and I can't believe cannabis showdowns are still happening. I'm thankful, and not surprised, you were fierce. In 2015, you and Sophie showed them with your Venn diagrams! :) Disappointing and disgusting that in 2023 parents are still questioned and disputed. Love, peace, strength, and beauty are there with you... her name is Sophie and I believe her strength and resiliency are inspired by YOU...and yours by HER. You both make the world a better place. Happy Birthday, Sophie!
Warmest Birthday Wishes to your Beautiful Miss Sophie, Elizabeth. You both show the world what beautiful, fierce, warrior-like Grace truly looks like.
Hospital Time is weird, isn't it? Though I've always found the time just-after Hospital Time more challenging, when you go back home and there are no more shift workers. It is just back to just you shaking off the hospital scaries and planning for re-entry.
Sending love and birthday wishes for sweet Sophie's healing, and strength and comfort for you, Elizabeth.
Sending love and praying hard for you both.
I'm thinking of beautiful Sophie and you and sending warmest wishes.
Sending loving kindness 💞
Thank you for sharing, Elizabeth. I’ll be praying for your sweet Sophie and you!! Sending healing and loving thoughts your way. Lynne
Thank you for always telling your story so honestly and beautifully, no matter how difficult- sending love your way and hope for rest and healing.
My heart goes out to you all, happy birthday to the beautiful young woman.
