The dog is here.

The dog is here.


The four most beautiful words in the world.
Why?

Destiny read her very first sentence today and this was it.
The dog is here.
I'm still crying.

She went an entire year not learning one sight word and not knowing how sound out words. But now, things are different. She has a daddy and a mommy. She is getting more and more comfortable. She is stable. She is learning!

She is ablsolutely wonderful.
This was quite a large sentence for her first one, but she did it.
She can do anything. She's my super hero.
She told me right after she read it, "Mommy! I'm becoming a princess!"
No baby, you already are a princess. 100% princess.

And I am so very proud of you.

Beautiful girl with all the curls
Darling of our lives
Taken from the breath of God
And left to my design

I don't know why you chose me
But I know where we've been
And I promise you
with all my heart

I've loved you...

since before I knew about you
since before you came home
since before you could even dare to dream and hope

And I'll love you
for all time.
