Girl Your Amazing!

I watched this brought tears to my eyes.

Broken is so amazingly beautiful. But really, what is broken? I look at that little girl, Sarah Grace, in the video and I see amazing! I look at Makenzie and I see amazing. I do not see broken, however, as much as I hate it.... most of the world does.

More and more though it does not matter to me. I have met so many wonderful people who see the same amazing beauty I see when I look at Makenzie. People who understand the lengths I go to in order to see Makenzie has everything she needs. I have met people who get my passion for the cause.

Today I verified that the wheelchair process is moving in the right direction. Therapists are being contacted, the base has been ordered and should be here within 7-14 days. Before Christmas Makenzie should have a new wheel chair. Words could not begin to describe my excitement! A huge thank you to the people who have fought for this "cause" for so long on Makenzie's behalf! It means the world to me and my family!

This week I have also been looking into ways to get Makenzie some social interaction since she is not going to school. Today I enrolled her in swimming lessons at a warm water pool! Makenzie LOVES the pool and I am so excited to see how she responds when she is in warm water instead of ice cold water. We will start this next week!

I am also exploring story time at the library, an open gymnastics gym, and a music class through the rec center.

Stigma or no stigma, broken or not broken, I am guessing all of the new people we meet during these activities will fall in love with Makenzie...... because...... she is simply amazing..... Just the way she is!

Believe... Prayer Works
