Here is a picture of our sweet girl in April 2012. We had just come home from a day at the zoo and the weather was so perfect. Maia had her bubbles and was running around the yard, laughing. What a precious day.
And here is Miss Maia today in the same shirt (notice the snow in the background this year - lol), "running" in our yard. Physically, she has come so far. And cognitively... yes, compared to when she left the hospital, Maia has made progress, too, I praise God for that. However, I still grieve the loss of the child in the picture above. My heart aches today for my sweet girl.
I've got more I want to share and will try to do so tomorrow, but for now this is all I can put together. :-(
