HOME three weeks.
How amazing to use that word. HOME!
It has been beautiful....heartbreakingly beautiful.
How can a girl of eight (January 15) be eleven pounds?
But then.....hallelujah ...she has gained from 9.8 # on pickup.
How very sad that she turns her head away from us....as far as she can possibly turn it to avoid interaction...UNTIL!!!.....she hears music. It is then that her eyes light up and she seeks that interaction. How amazing that she let us in on that little secret....thank you for revealing that to us Lord!
How my heart breaks when she whimpers each time we reach to pick her up. No child should EXPECT to be handled roughly....ever. Yet how my heart overflows when she melts into me, and feels safe enough to fall asleep on my chest.
So much yet to discover.
Cardiology. Neurology. Orthopedic. Feeding. Genetics. Cranio-facial.
Blessed that our other children love their sis.....and seem to understand the time these things take.
Can she walk? Talk? Roll over? Eat?......nope.
Is she a "joyous blessing"?
Is Victoria "a gift from the LORD"?
Are some days and nights tough? Of course, many!
"But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint."
Shown to us every moment by Jesus.....
So thankful His mercies are new every morning.
Thank you for your support.
Thank you for believing in us.
Thank you for helping us bring this little miracle into our lives.
