Her name was Harmani (pronounced Har-man-hee). She was just a bitty bean and didn't have the best odds. Her social worker, doctors, and specialists gave us the grim reality based facts of caring for a "child like her".
But there was something about her. The way her personality sparkled through, her big eyes, happy smile, and the way she bit the doctors. Her moxy. She has fire inside her and her spirit is unquenchable.
It has been an amazing journey. One that has been full of ups, downs, and more loop de loops than the best roller coaster around.
But she's come so far. Farther that most thought possible. We still have a long ways to go. We have surgeries ahead, more doctors and therapies, and schooling. But through it all Cary Lynn continues to triumph and her spirit is determined even when her body fights against her. This little girl is going to change the world around her just as much as she's changed mine.
