Homecoming Anniversary

Chronological Age: 16 months
Adjusted Age: 1 year exactly

Today marks the anniversary of Truman's homecoming and his due date. It's an odd day emotionally, but feels far more celebratory than his birthday did.

I know many of you are looking for a final post today, but I'm a busy mama and plan to make the final post this weekend recapping Truman's journey and put a link to the new password-protected blog for friends and family.

I too have followed Truman's amazing progress since his birth. I will be so sad not to be able to hear how he is doing. I will keep Truman in my prayers. He has come so far! What a tough little guy.

Happy Due Date/Homecoming! What a joyous day!! Bennett's birthday is in January so his first year we postponed his party until his due date (May) and he was able to enjoy the cake much more. :)

I'm looking forward to reading your post as you reflect on Truman's last year - it's been a blessing for us to read along.

Happy 1 year homecoming AND 1 year adjusted birthday Truman!! You are getting big and have come so far in the past 16 months. It's been wonderful seeing you grow into the toddler you are today.

I know you don't know me like others have stated but I was pregnant and almost lost my pregnancy shortly before you gave birth to Truman. I was unstable for quite some time afterwards and you gave me hope. I was able to carry to term and have followed Truman's progress all along. I gave birth December 29th with difficulty but a mostly healthy boy. Reading what you have gone through has helped me remain strong. If you are allowing any that aren't super close into your private blog I would love to continue to follow you family's progress. lady_cleric@yahoo.com

Best of Luck and Happy Holidays to you all!

Hi I found your blog through another blog and Dr. Suterwala caught my attention ( I probably spelled it all wrong ) but we too go to TT's clinic...

Kara,
Congrats on a year that has been so long and full of struggles and also wonderful surprises. I so enjoy reading about Truman as it helps me not feel so alone in our own micro-premie world with our boys.
Happy holidays,
Courtney

You don't know me, I'm in Scotland. I can't even remember how I first came across your blog, I think I just clicked "next blog" one day around the time he was born. I have a weekly check in with you guys to see how he's doing and have followed the highs and lows all the way.

Thank you so much for sharing it all and I'll be sad not to follow his progress into toddlerhood and beyond.

I wish you all a Merry Christmas!

You have given me and my husband hope. Our baby twins were born at 24 weeks. They survived and we have too because we have followed your journey. If you find that you can include me, our email is sh4430@aol.com

Thank you from a fellow micropreemie mommy....

Hi, I'm another member of the dec 06 board. I just wanted to thank you for letting us all be part of truman's journey. My daughter and I share today as our birthday, so I have felt connected to you all in this way. Happy homecoming anniversary and may God be with you all on the journey to come.

Dear Kara, Ben and not-so-teeny-tiny Truman:

Thank you for letting us be a vicarious part of your son's first year. While we will miss hearing all about his achievements and milestones reached, we are so grateful for all of the things you have shared with us. I'm sure other parents of micro-preemies have been so reassured to see how Truman has thrived.

Best wishes and please get in touch if you ever come to Edmonton, AB, Canada.

Cait and Sevryn

I too am a stranger from the Feb 04 iVillage playgroup. I have followed Truman's progress and am sad to know that you will no longer be updating. Thank you for allowing me to share in Truman's (and your) journey. You are truly blessed.
Wishing you the best that life has to offer.

Little Truman will never know how many people loved and prayed for him this past year. I am from the '06 board and have enjoyed following his accomplishments and worried about his setbacks. May your sweet baby continue to thrive and best wishes to you always!

(It's been like reading a novel that was so good, I don't want it to end!) Thank you for sharing, Chris Porter, bingtrendy@yahoo.com

Happy Homecoming Anniversary! I have been reading about Truman since he was born, I was part of the Jan 07 Playgroup and saw the post that he was born. I have been praying for him since!Truman is such a miracle! The due date anniversary will always come with bittersweet memories. I have a surviving twin who was born at 25weeks. SO I know alot of the emotions you are going through. I would love to continue to read about Trumans accomplishments if I can, if not I understand the want for privacy. Thanks!
