Happy Birthday Reba!

Dear Reba,

One year ago today at 9:20am you came into the world and filled our family with more love than we thought possible.

We never would have imagined that on your first birthday we would be at the hospital with you getting your third MIBG scan to see how the tumor is doing.

You have been through a lot in the last six months – medically, more than a lot of people.

You are so strong, such a fighter. You have taught us how to live in the moment. 

Despite everything you’ve had to deal with, you are reaching all the “normal” milestones and are impressing us all daily. You took your first steps a few days ago. Aside from ‘mama’ and ‘dada’, your first word was ‘backpack’. You endured a fever yesterday when both of your top front teeth broke through, the same day as your radioactive MIBG injection. 

We are so excited to celebrate your birthday with family this weekend. We love you to the moon and back.


Momma and Dada
