You guys probably remember past posts about baby Vera Grace from Shelby -- her young mom, Shelly, was fighting cervical cancer while pregnant.

Shelly faced lots of challenges with birth and recovery. MANY of you closely followed their story. (Past posts below.)

While on vacation, Vera Grace's dad, Brian, sent a heartfelt email. Vera Grace is now four months old, he said, and his impressive wife fought through chemo and radiation and recently went back to work.

They both look amazing.

"Even though the path was long and hard to endure at times, it finally looks like my family got its happy ending," Brian said.

An update surely worth sharing.
