Things are better.
Much, much better.
I mean, how can they not be… when she’s around?
Just look at her.
Falling in love with this child has been the easiest thing I’ve ever done.
And it’s because I do love her so, that I think her ‘diagnosis’ has been so difficult for me to bear.
I found myself feeling fiercely protective of her. And grieving for all I feared she might endure.
And a million other emotions that made me just want to alternately cry… and squeeze the dickens out of her.
God is revealing to me some sweet truths about His plans for Vivienne.
Vivienne is how He created her to be.
Because the truth is, there is no Vivienne without dwarfism.
It is as much a part of her as her almond shaped eyes.
Her adorable chipmunk teeth.
Her incessantly easy-going demeanor.
Her delicate hands.
Her outrageously capable spirit.
And wrestling with the fact that she is indeed a dwarf has led me again and again to this simple fact…
I love her.
Just as she is.
And I wouldn’t want her any other way.
Because any other way wouldn’t be my Vivienne.
Thanking Him from the bottom of my heart for this child.
Just as she is.
