It’s so hard to believe that it’s been over two years since we first heard of bilateral clubfeet and learned our girl would be born with this disability. It seems like yesterday and forever ago at the same time. Here is a look at yesterday (or June 2014) and today,
In those early days, I couldn’t even imagine pool days or her wearing sandals or running across our backyard. Maybe that was naive, but it was something I feared I may never see my girl do. Today, I can’t imagine things any differently. The journey was definitely filled with highs and lows – emotionally and physically draining experiences, but the Lord used her to teach this new mommy so much.

In honor of World Clubfoot Day (June 3rd), I wanted to reflect on the incredible journey the Lord has taken us on.

I hope her story inspires and encourages you.
