(that is the recap) and this post was real time.
(post surgery by a few hours)
(the next day)
i can say without a shadow of a doubt that one of my least expected,
(for a season most grieved) and ultimately
greatest gifts has been to have a deaf daughter.
i cannot imagine m being born with typical hearing,
and i can't imagine her without her implants.
every day we are blessed to have the sound of her voice filling our home and our hearts with songs, shouts, protests, stories, tantrums, and laughter.
so, so grateful for the surgery that changed her life and ours.
