Is She Hiding Something?
She noticed her backpack was so full, it was almost bursting at the seams. As a mom, she couldn't help but worry. As she unzipped the backpack in order to take a peek inside, she couldn't believe her daughter was capable of such a thing.
Kids love to sneak in toys and treats to school, so she wouldn't have been surprised if she'd taken something that didn't belong in school. After all, she was just a little girl. Kids are mischievous little creatures and they don't always realize that by carrying so much weight in their backpacks, they're really putting too much pressure on their backs. But when she unzipped her backpack hoping to remove whatever she had hidden inside, she had to do a double take.
The lovely couple was exhausted but happy to finally meet their baby. She'd been through labor and was tired, but when the young mother and father finally saw their baby girl, they realized something was off. Her legs looked nothing like they were supposed to. They couldn't help but stare at the doctors, almost begging to know what was wrong. But instead of finding comfort, they saw nothing but concern on the doctor's faces. Sadly, they realized that their poor little girl had a tough road ahead.
There's nothing scarier than seeing your own child suffer. She had come into this world just a few days ago, and yet, she was already scheduled to undergo a series of intricate surgeries. Their baby needed surgery to correct her legs, but thankfully, their baby wasn't in any pain. Right away she started to dig in and try to find some answers. She needed to know what was happening to her child.
Tough Road Ahead
Sometimes, we don't know what to tell a parent whose child is facing surgery or a tough medical journey, particularly at such a young age. There was nothing anyone could've said to this mom that would've made her feel better. But she knew she needed to stay strong for her baby girl. She was not about to let her go on this journey all by herself, and thanks to both their strength, it ended up paying off.
