Okay so seriously, there are no enough exclamation points to convey my excitement about the 3 steps Mila took just moments ago! Mila has worked tirelessly and we've prayed endlessly for the Lord to restore this sweet little girl and He has gone way above and beyond our wildest dreams. Sorry for the shaky video, she had just taken steps unexpectedly and I wasn't prepared so I grabbed my phone camera really fast to try and capture it!
P.S. She JUST had eye surgery YESTERDAY!!!!
After I put the phone down from this video, I burried my face in my hands and bawled like a big baby. Zoya ran to me and hugged me and said, "mama no cry" and I said "mama is crying because I'm so so happy because Mila has worked really hard to learn to walk and she's doing it!" Zoya said, "Mama cry happy!" and gave me the best hug ever. She got it. Next I called Shawn at work who apparently thought I was calling to tell him someone choked again (maybe I sounded hysterical? LOL).
Honestly, I have pictured this moment for so long, and wondered if it would ever happen for Mila. If it didn't that would have been perfectly fine...we would have loved her just the same, but seeing her overcome so many obstacles and take 3 steps today has reminded me about the power of love and the power of God. Those 3 steps symbolized Mila's life of miracles, her determined spirit, and her ability to overcome every obstacle in her path with the help of the Lord!
GO MILA GO! The sky is the limit!
