Claire Joy Leitz
The next year was spent playing catch up. Therapy and doctors appointments nearly every day. Everyone had some bit of advice for us but you know, the thing I learned the most was just to love her. One day I mentally went over each therapists well intentioned instructions. Defeated I realized how much I had not gotten to that day but then I thought, have I made time to be her mom? I cried! That is the vital piece no one prescribed, just love her. Just sit her on my lap and read a story, look into her almond eyes and say "I love you my sweet child."
So many tiers, so much joy. I look forward to sharing this journey with you.
