What a difference a year makes

Posted on Updated on

It was a little over year ago that I was finally allowed meet my niece, Kylie Ann Kozlowski. She had a rough first year because she was born 4 months premature and had to a bunch of surgeries before being able to come home and endure one of Chicago’s worst winters ever.

Kylie Ann Kozlowski Thanks You

She’s a tough little lady and we’re very proud of her. This picture was taken around her first birthday.

    Thank you Mario. It’s amazing what the memories of Kylie’s early beginnings do. Everytime Kylie is acting up, having major tantrums, or just plain colicky we remember her hard beginnings & the frustration goes away. She’s a true miracle. And you are truly a humble young man and a good role model for all. Thank you for bringing this together for us.
    Love you,

She crawls and babbles like any other baby now, this will always serve to remind us all how far she’s already come in her life. She’s been through more struggle in in her first year than I have in my whole life. The force is strong in her.
