Lauren finally took her first steps last night since having both of her casts were removed. And today is the one month anniversary of the freak accident. (Click on the link if you don't know the story)
I am overjoyed that my little girl is walking....Thank You Lord! It's like she is learning how to walk all over again.....the whole irony to this is that Lauren was our earliest walker out of all 4 lovies....she walked at 9 mos!
I was really concerned initially after she got her casts off, and it was a little scary for me...for both of us. She wasn't recovering as the doctor had predicted, and I'll be honest, I struggled with that and am trying to realize that she is going at her own pace, (trusting God can be really be hard sometimes),....but I will say that God truly did provide peace in my heart, especially during the times I was seriously worried about her recovery. She still has a ways to go.....but I will hold on to the hope that someday in the not-so-distant future, I will be able to watch my daughter running through the yard.
Please enjoy these photos I took of my determined 2 yr. old.....and please continue to pray that she will improve as the days progress.....and that I will trust in God to provide for all of her needs.
