One Year Ago
One year ago today...
I didn't know my heart could hold so much love.
I discovered the sweet spot between Sunshine's ear and shoulder.
Watched as my daughter reached out and touched her hand on my face with a look of "At last, we are together".
I saw her smile for the first time.
I felt my heart sing as she reached for me instead of her nanny.
I didn't know if she would be able to walk, talk, or overcome the obstacles of malnutrition, and I didn't care.
I knew my family was complete.
Today I have a sparkly, sweet and amazing daughter who...
can count to 5
runs instead of walks
sings a lullaby to her babies every night.
loves pretties in her hair.
is adored by so many.
is healthy, medication free, and thriving.
has stolen more hearts than I can count.
story has convinved at least 1 other family to start a similar journey.
can throw a tantrum with the best of them.
gives the best kisses and hugs in all of the world.
Happy Gotcha Day my sweet, sweet girl!
