I am a 30ish year old mom of five precious boys and one sweet girl. Four of our children are here with us and two are in the arms of Jesus. Our sweet baby girl Hope was diagnosed with Dystrophic Epdermolysis Bullosa and our youngest son came to us through adoption, the Lord has shown us just how Faithful He is. We will continue to Journey and follow Him where ever He leads. We feel very blessed that God chose us to be the parents of each of our kids, and we look forward to what He has in store for us in foster care!
Well, we are finally settling in and getting used to having Hope here. We are a little less afraid to get out and about and are having fun playing dress up a little bit. We have found a couple of pairs of mittens that work nicely and it has given us a little more freedom in the wardrobe area so look out! We still have no new blisters to report and the old ones are nearly healed. We are praising God for this. We have NO idea what the future holds and the test results are still not in but we know that only God can explain what is going on here. We are trusting in Him and loving this little girl with everything we have.
She is definitely getting bigger and asserting herself more. She likes to be held and always loves to be the center of attention. Holding her in one arm while multitasking just will not do! Tonight she will be getting her first real bath and we are assuming she will dislike it because she hates sponge baths, but we will see. Today is her first day in her little swing and it gave mommy a full twenty minutes of time to upload some new photos. She is waking up now, so that is our update! Enjoy the pics!
Go ahead and mention my child, The one that died, you know. Don't worry about hurting me further. The depth of my pain doesn't show. Don't worry about making me cry. I'm already crying inside. Help me to heal by releasing The tears that I try to hide. I'm hurt when you just keep silent, Pretending she didn't exist. I'd rather you mention my child, Knowing that she has been missed. You asked me how I was doing. I say "pretty good" or "fine". But healing is something ongoing I feel it will take a lifetime. ~ Elizabeth Dent ~
