I am redeemed, You set me free
So I’ll shake off these heavy chains
And wipe away every stain now I’m not who I used to be
I am redeemed…
{Big Daddy Weave}

When I remember the little girl we swooped into our arms a year ago and watch her videos, I can see glimpses of who she is now. Love covers a multitude of pain in the cocoon of family.
.
*Once so sick with infection, now she is well~ {many specialists and appts}.
*Once so sad from abandonment, now she is secure~ {picked up every single time she melted into a tantrum}.
*Once so scared from trauma and unable to fall asleep, now she sleeps in her bed with sisters close by~ {many hours being held, sleeping with us, or sitting by her bed until sleep won}.
.
She’s come so far and yet so far to go. In my experience until our sweet ones have been HOME longer than not, they may question if this love is forever.
.
It’s forever little Calla baby~ we adore and love you always. Even on our worst day together, you are worth it and redemption looks beautiful on you!!!
