For the past couple months the girls and I have been doing some field trips with a local homeschool group. It has been nice watching Cali and Lily grow a bit in the independence, knowledge and relationships. Cali and I have kinda clicked with one mom of six children. Her sweet youngest daughter is about the same as Cali. This sweet, happy, feisty , independent,smart little girl has downs syndrome. It has been such a blessing for me to watch Cali play beside her new little friend and has never asked or looked at her new friend differently than her her other playmates. The innocence that Cali still processes is a beautiful thing to be a part of.
Lily has also made a special friend. this little girl is Lily's age and the oldest child in her family. Her mom was about 7 months pregnant when we met in September. So I enjoyed the tail end of my new friend's pregnancy. Always such an exciting time! This week she delivered her beautiful baby girl. Her sweet precious baby girl is now with Jesus. I know where she is but the pain of this family. So sad. Hard to understand sometimes the plans God has. Praying for them tonight.
