It looks like 12 visits to four different doctors. Five visits to the hospital. Three major surgeries.
It looks like five pounds and two inches. Growing two sizes in clothes. A few more inches of hair.
It looks like trips to the playground. A vacation to Disney World. Music and movement classes.
It looks like hugs and kisses. Giggles and squeals. Tears and tantrums.
It looks like a baby growing into a toddler. A child learning to love her siblings. An orphan becoming a daughter.
It looks like the gospel.
6 months ago there was a baby who had no idea we were coming for her. She had no idea what it meant to have a family or to know the love of a mom and dad. She didn't know what she was missing. She did nothing special to deserve a family's love, and there is nothing she can do to lose it.
We love you Lily!
