When we adopted Gigi, we all wore shirts that said ‘We rise by lifting others.’ Yesterday, I commented to Tess that Isabel was doing so well, that I finally felt like we were on solid ground. She has gained so much weight. She is using so many new signs. Tess said “She is rising, mama.”
We are in a good space.
We didn’t start out that way. Isa deserved some privacy as we all lifted her up. She needed a family to rally for her and make sure she was okay.
She is doing great! We got the news that, for now, she won’t need heart surgery. No hip surgery either. She is headed to a summer preschool program in a couple of weeks! We are ROCKING THIS!!!
