~ My Girl J ~

Gracie is one tough cookie. She has been through several surgeries, a major earthquake in China and many other things in her three years.

But I tell you she is one determined little girl. Where there is a will there is a way. I believe that is her favorite saying. And if it's not, it should be.

She is always laughing, having fun and the bond she shares with her Daddy is super strong. As Gracie says: " he is the bestest in the whole world!"

Please say a prayer for our girl, she has another consult on Tuesday. I think we are facing more palate surgery and ear tubes again. (yes, she had her second set put in Jan 6 of this year)
So goes the routine of a cleft affected child. Many surgeries. And it's not just rough on us, it's rough on her. She has a problem with the anesthesia and it isn't pretty. But, we will do what we have to do to make things right with our girl J. She is one determined cookie and I wouldn't have it any other way.

Ni Hao Y'all
