Stunted Growth

So without going into too much detail. Our daughter isn’t growing the way she should be. There really isn’t a lot more I can tell you. We know the results of her recent tests, but they want to do more. We’re seeing a specialist at the end of the month and in the mean time we’re playing the waiting game.

We’re pretty nervous and emotional. Hubby got this horrible flu bug the day after we got the news and compound that with nursing school schedule, work, and family crisis, well… you get one sick guy.

No one ever expects something to be wrong with their child. You hope and pray for a normal, perfectly healthy kid. And then when something happens you don’t really know what to do or how to react.

The only thing we do know for certain is that we love our baby girl so much, and we love her just the way she is. We wouldn’t change a thing. Heavenly Father knows her personally and he knew she would have these problems. All we can do at this point is trust in Him.

So we do our best, and even though we ache inside we know everything will be OK in the end. In the meantime… we wait.

      Thanks Paula,
      You are such a sweetheart! Yes, we are pretty worried – but it makes it easier knowing we have so much support.

  2. Amber, your daughter has already had such an amazing and positive affect on everyone who has touched her life. I don’t know what the coming weeks will hold, but I know that she will continue to use her amazing personality, intelligence, stubbornness and joy to continue to affect us all for the better.
