I wish I had of started this sooner than now, as we have been through so much of your journey already! This blog is for you firstly, so you will someday know all of the obsticals that you have overcome. Secondly for myself, as an avenue to express the challanges, and victories we face together. And lastly for all those parents out there that just got the frightening results back from their OBGYN that told them in a sense that their baby is "not perfect". This blog is to tell your story, your quest if you will. Lilybear, and the Quest of Congenital Talipes Equinovarus. :) Before I begin to tell your story, a few short words:
To Our LilyBear: I will state that you are perfect, in every way. You are my hero in ways I never thought possible. You have overcome so much in your short little life, and I just can't wait to see the beautiful, strong, independent person I know you will be.
To our Peanut: Being a big sister to Lilybear, well, it hasn't been easy at times. You were so great with all out hospital visits, and travels. You were so patient when mommy had to do things for Lilybear, and with Lilybear. You are my hero for being the best big sister in the world. If I ever had a big sister, I would have wanted her to be as loving, kind, gentle, and beautiful in side and out as you are.
To My wonderful Husband: Thank you for being my rock. Thank you for putting up with my roller coaster emotions, and moods. Thank you for working so hard so that I can stay home and look after our beautiful children. You are my best friend, and the most wonderful man I know. I love you more with every passing minute, and I am so happy to grow old with someone like you :)
And lastly, to the parents that are reading this because they want to know what is in store for them with their little baby, who may still be in mommy's belly. Be brave, Chin up, and Deep Breath. It is frightening; the unknown. But take comfort in knowing that you are not alone, and that these fears will pass, and you will be blessed with a wonderful child who will just blow your mind with what he or she will do :) Read on, and know that the road may not be easy, and it may not be perfect, but it will be worth it!
