You remember the little girl who was TERRIFIED of our dogs? The little girl who would not even step in the front door when she first met them? The sweet angel who climbed up onto the highest counter tops for days—too afraid to put her foot on the ground in case a friendly canine came near her?
Well, look at her now! It is so easy for us to focus on the LONG road ahead that we have with Haven. Some days we feel like she has so many obstacles to overcome (and she does!). But, we are also constantly looking back, reminding ourselves of how FAR she has come. She takes baby steps, but she IS learning and growing.
These are the victories that we rejoice in daily.
