In case you're having a day (like me) where you're feeling a little hopeless cause it's just been one of those days. Let me share this with you. When J first came her behaviors were over the top. It was. not. pretty. In any shape or form. She was always looking for something to kill or mutilate. I'm sad to say that some 2 to 3 ft long fish did not come out alive. At least it wasn't me or Puddin but it wasn't for a lack of trying and much effort. Fun stuff people.

So even on the bad days it helps me to remember the progress. She's nothing short of a miracle.
Watching and learning from my daughter every day. She is recovering from childhood trauma and growing emotionally in ways I never thought possible. She's taking me with her on the journey and I've had to learn and grow with her. She inspires me every day!
Walk with us on the journey to recovery. It can be a bumpy ride sometimes but that just means we're in the middle of a miracle. We always come out shining on the other side. So sit down and hang on tight. We're going on the ride of our lives!
