A New Smile

I cannot believe it and I know I knew she could do it but all the same I am still amazed everytime she shows me those braces. To me they mean so much more than just a cute new smile. To me they are the culmination of a day I had hoped would come.
When your child used to cry at the simplest of touches..braces mean so much more. I don’t know but it is hard for me to convey that to see her smile today, just meant so much to me. She did it, she wanted to achieve this goal and she did it.
Our little child, who could not be hugged or stand having her teeth brushed and cried for all her oral motor work for her oral dyspraxia…did it…she got her braces.

I smile each time I see them and I thank God for how far she has come.
