This Thanksgiving, I am so very thankful for this beautiful six (almost seven) year old girl who has been home with us for four and half years. The progress that we have seen her make in the last few months has been beyond anything we could have hoped for in those first months home when she was so isolated and broken. God continues to restore her bit by bit.
He continues to put people in her life to love her, build her up, and push her to be all she can be. She sat at the table this very weekend next to her sisters and played a game that I made out of cups, pipe
He continues to use her in our lives to teach us so much. She can now smile for a photograph. When you say smile, she looks at the camera and smiles. To this momma, her smile is priceless. She loves so big, and, because I fought so hard and prayed so much for her heart to receive me, there is nothing like her signing "I love you". Oh, this girl can reduce me to tears in no time flat when she is loving her family.
He has shown us the value in the smallest accomplishments
She continues to fill our home with much joy! We love, love, love her and are so blessed to be able to call her our daughter.
