site, I've come to realize something.
I've been praying for a miracle.
For God to heal my baby.
I've been praying novenas, and rosaries and special mother's prayers.
Those are probably the things that have given me the grace to see what I've realized.
All these people in all the other countries, where many poor children have
cleft lips and palates, and wait in line with a ton of other children for a surgery that will change their lives.
A surgery that is described as "a miracle" by all who are able to receive it.
A surgery that is automatic here, in the United States.
A surgery that my baby will have at only 3 months.
My baby won't have to wait years and be mocked and shamed from school.
My baby won't have to wait all day with 100's of other children,
only to find out that there's no more time or money for his/her surgery.
My baby will have his/her's mother's milk, pumped and given to him/her in special bottles,
waiting there at the hospital for us to use.
Our baby won't die because there is no way for us to feed him/her
like so many cleft lip/palate babies in other countries.
We've already got our miracle.
We will witness our miracle with every surgery our baby is blessed enough to have.
We are part of God's miracle.
I cannot even contain all the excitement I feel
that God would allow us to be a part of something so big.
