Just yesterday a nine month old with a cardboard box came to my house. She came with clothes that didn't fit, and broken toys. I stood holding her and basking in the thrill of my new little one.
She tipped my world upside down. She has defied odds, cheated death, and has blossomed in our Topsy turvy household.
Cary Lynn has shown me how to be brave and because of her I have become a stronger mother and advocate. I had to give up so much but have gotten infinitely more back.
Happy Birthday my little warrior! Mama loves you more than you ever will know.
