It has been over nine months since we said goodbye to our sweet Gavin. Since Gavin's death we have begun to relearn exactly what normal life is. I've come to the conclusion that normal is such a vague term. What I consider to be normal life others consider chaos and what I consider to be out of the norm, some call their comfort. Life is funny that way.
Well -- if there is such a thing as normal life, today would be just that. Our little girl had her kindergarten orientation. Adam and I are overwhelmed with love for this little girl. Today I kinda saw her in a whole new light. I saw her as the result of an extraordinary miracle -- a result of a life chosen and directed by God. Do you realize what odds this amazing child has overcome? It's difficult and fascinating at the same time to look back on what her life has been like for the past four years. Don't get me wrong -- Madison has had a great life, but it was obviously was filled with much heartache and chaos.
But I look at these photos and I find it very hard to find scars. I see a little girl protected by God. I see my little baby who has grown into a little lady about to change the world. I see a life set on a rocky path but also a life fully equipped to cope and deal with the challenges!
I'm so excited to see what this year has in store for my little girl.
Go get'em girlfriend!
