Our daughter Lucy was born with six toes on one foot.
So for a while we had 71 of them all together.

To read how that diagnosis turned our world up-right again, read the other posts on Lucy. She gives us a run for our money and her diagnosis breaks our hearts on a continual basis, but she completes our family in ways we never would have guessed were possible.
Although our journey has certainly been a refiners fire, I would never trade it. It has made our children glow with compassion. It has made my husband and I so much more deliberate and aware...and thankful...for even the little things.
Yes, the fact that we at one time had 71 toes has changed us for the better. How I hope that we can continue to look at the bright side and help her the best way we possibly can through the challenges that inevitably lie ahead.
