As I reflect on the last, almost three years, since Gabriella was placed in our
arms, it has become apparent that Nicholas needs her just as much as she
needs him. They balance each other out in the most perfect way!
Yesterday Nicholas and Curtis both had laparoscopic surgery, both on their
right knees due to pain. Dr C was totally surprised to find that both of their
plica bands on their knees were almost double the size they should be. Now
they are recovering and doing very well.
Gabriella knew that Nicholas had been asking for a chocolate cake with
chocolate icing and insisted that we make this for him. She added the hearts
to tell him she loved him:)
Gabriella is a very smart little girl in realizing that chocolate can make just
about anything better...including her big brother:)
