Her name is Charlotte Elizabeth- “Free, Pledged to God. I gave her my middle name, I love having that bond with her. She is indeed free from her past but not unscathed, her wounds are deep, the healing process is long, the work is hard and the questions endless. We struggle, fight and push through the things we were taught to think were normal, we heal. We have a promise in our future and it is going to be good.
She loves to be in the kitchen, helping and learning. She has fallen in love recently with reading, spending her nights after being tucked in, reading with a flashlight. She has her own sense of style, dreams (current dream to sing on America’s Got Talent) and passions. She is one of the best big sisters I have ever seen, she loves well. She adores babies and has a mama heart, spending her afternoons playing dolls and Barbies. She has this spirit of adventure, she loves to try new things and dream big, I pray she never loses sight of that. This past year she has learned skateboarding and softball, she has this ability to see something done and then to try it and succeed. She is going to grow up and do great things.
