I remember being so worried about why she was so stiff and rigid, among other worries. I then learned this is a common posture for crib babies who have no idea really how to be held and snuggled. Mila was mostly kept in her crib because the staff thought that this was best for her since she was so sick. I wish so badly she didn't have to experience her first 7 months of life without us, but I trust that she came into our lives, and us into her, in the exact moment that we were meant to meet one another.
As much as it hurts to look back, it feels so good to know that God truly revived our beautiful daughter. He's not finished with her yet, either! 10 months later and I smile knowing where she came from, witnessing how far she has come, and looking forward to the beautiful future she has a head of her!
