Daddies are like miracles
.
& this girl loves hers with a fierce kind of love. A #love which was built on time & trust.
.
When Mila first came home she wasn’t really attached to either one of us. I mean ... the girl had such unhealthy attachment she probably would have gone to our mail lady & let the woman take her home.
.
After all... she came to us without even one hesitation... away from the nanny she knew so well.
.
If you haven’t seen our gotcha/coming home video yet ... the link is in bio.
.
The girl didn’t care who took her or showered her with love, kisses .... & she would most definitely go for food.
.
Totally NOT a normal behavior.
.
What is normal & healthy? A child who screams bloody murder when handed to a total stranger who then proceeds to take the kid away from all that’s familiar.
.
As you would imagine ...
.
It took Mila several months to begin & form any kind of attachment to us. & it began with mama. Mila’s love for me became something fierce. There was a long period when no one in her world existed but mama.
.
Then ...
.
Little by little ... she began to see this large 6’4” bearded man, with a really loud voice. The man with a silly & gentle demeanor. A man who was always meant to live in her heart in a deep & meaningful way.
.
Something magical began to happen ...
.
She began to fall deeply in love with her daddy. Today ...when I look at the way she adores him ... how she trusts his hand will always catch her each time she flies up into the air ... takes my breath away.
.
I believe ...every little girl needs to be caught by her daddy with that kind of love.
.
Let’s hope China Joy number two 👧🏻 loves daddy with a wild heart of her very own. Because this daddy has so much love to give.

My emotions keep catching up with me. As hard as I try to be strong. As much as I want to not worry, there they are. These emotions that I can't seem to shake. This picture was taken yesterday as we spent a long day in the hospital. Tessa did very well for everything she had to go through, but I can't stop this anxiety from bringing me down. I feel guilty for even saying that because we've been so blessed the past few weeks with her health. But no matter how good things are... she still has cancer. I wake up with that truth everyday. When things are good, I can deal fairly well. I may even forget for a minute our circumstance. But, with every new bruise, increase in temperature, sneeze, cough, or mood change, reality sets in and the worry begins. I am learning about myself through all of this and how I have a major need to control things. Unfortunately, I am also learning there are very few things I actually have control of. I am trying very hard to set the worry aside, but I'm just not sure how yet. So for now, we will take it one day at a time and hopefully by the time we are through I'll have it down
