Hope Tortilla

Tor Tor
Little Munk
          But my favorite nickname for this well loved girl?
Hope Tortilla 
Our daughter who struggles with speech continued to call her Hope after we adopted her (Hope was her pseudonym on Reece's Rainbow) we explained to her that now her name is VICTORIA.
That was a tough one for her to pronounce.... so now she puts the two together, and we have a Hope Tortilla.
I smile every time I hear this. Our little forgotten girl.... how you are loved and adored by your Family. 
Something so simple means so much.

Milestone #9

Happy Birthday Victoria....NINE?!?!

Who knew?
Who could have guessed?
You have fought for every victory...and you have done it with such joy!

How we would have loved to have had your first eight years with you. 
How heartbreaking it is to know that those years were taken from you.
But with each moment of eye contact, 
Each squeal of happiness,
Every time we see you straighten your little legs,
Every time you roll over,
When you reach for a toy,
When you light up to your favorite song,
Every ounce you gain,
Each inch you grow,
Every time you bless us with your beautiful smile,


"You plead my cause, you right my wrongs
You break my chains, you overcome
You gave your life, to give me mine
You say that I am free
How can it be? Yeah
How can it be?"
I Am Yours...Lauren Daigle

We Praise Jesus that He saved you...for His purpose.

And lest we forget....this was Victoria a little more than year ago. 


Happy Birthday Love.
