I Stand Amazed...Again

I thought of you, my faithful readers today as I watched my little girl walk, run and swim with such strength.All I could think is, "Man I wish that I had my computer so I could post this."

This beautiful child is learning to walk stronger with her head up. It is truly an amazing journey to witness. This morning, I noticed that she was walking on her left foot without a shoe. She never puts weight on that side without her shoe- she always toe steps. I filed what I had noticed and moved on with my day. It wasn't until later, in the pool that I thought of it again. She was swimming so well. It wasn't long ago that her left side weakness caused her to swim almost in circles. Today, she was strong and straight. Her teacher thinks that she is almost ready to start the Stringray swim team- like as soon as May. Wow! I am not certain that we can fit swim club in the summer but we will see. I think that the combination of her horseback riding, swimming and therapy has brought about the strength that I am seeing. I stand amazed.

There are so many facets to adoption. My deepest desire would be that all could understand the beauty that is found in those facets. I have so many thoughts, plans and desires that center on this realm. I must step back to ensure that I walk only in the path that I am supposed- not reacting only in passion. Sometime, I will lay out all of the thoughts and ideas that I have running through my head. Until then, I will find myself content to type my life as I watch my hopes and dreams for this little girl unfold. I am blessed that you are walking it with me.

Jacie also hit another milestone today...she read a story! I knew that she would get it. She is by no means done learning but this is a step. I am so excited for her. All of her school is going fairly well. She is getting things little by little. She still loves to have me read aloud to her. I think that she would let me do that all day if I was willing but I have to say, "I can only do Junie B Jones for so long..."

I am honored to walk this journey (even if I have to read Junie B Jones incessently.)

I am grateful~
