I'm Ashley, I'm 20 years old and am so blessed to have my little girl and the love of my life. There's always room for growth, but I can gladly say that along with all the tough times, there is laughter and joy found in every day.
These past three days have been such an emotional roller coaster. On Monday, your hands and feet were swollen like balloons and you were not yourself. I immediately rushed you to the doctor to find that this is not normal. Rushed blood tests were taken and we lingered in limbo for two days. They did come back clean, which was somewhat of a huge relief. Now we are on the hunt for what is going on exactly, and will stop at nothing.
Thoughts have been rushing around my head. What would I do if it was what we were afraid of? What if it’s too late to stop it and I lose you? How did Tori do it? I could never leave my bed again, just hide from the rest of the world. The only thing that’s pulled me out of that dark place is the fact that you need me. You, Brandon, and God have given me the strength to pull through so much and I am so blessed to have you in my life.
So when you’re older, and when things don’t seem to be going your way, and things feel hopeless I hope that you are able to see the people around you that care about you and love you so deeply that we wouldn’t even think of functioning the same without you. You are strong, you are special, and you my dear are priceless- in God’s eyes, Mommy’s eyes and Daddy’s eyes. We will be here for you no matter what. Even when we don’t agree, you will always be my precious baby and I will protect you. I love you so much Kaiyah.
