This is on my mind...

Thank you Rhonda Jean from Down-to-Earth for this Friday challenge.  I've been a bit slack and today I'm cheating a bit.  It is not a photo so much and not a new thing so much, but something that is definitely on my mind today.


Sometimes a simple thing like a song can make you remember and today was definitely a day where I could not stop thinking about Bianca's journey.  We are so blessed that today Bianca is no different to any other 7 year old.  At the time it felt like time stood still, but today we are looking back and we realise just how blessed we were even when things felt impossibly difficult and alone.

Gosh, this really made me cry!
Bianca, you are a hero! My wish for you is that you can live a long, fulfilled, joy filled life because God knows you deserve it after such a difficult start!

I remember following your journey through your blogs from the beginning. Bianca suffered so much at times and your family struggled. Now she is a beautiful, healthy 7 year old survivor! I love reading about how very "normal" Bianca is today. You and your family ARE truly blessed!
