Celebrating the Firsts: Lydia's First Steps!

In the past week, two of our little darlings here at New Day have taken their first steps. We'll start with Lydia because she was the first.

Lydia came to us with multiple GI and heart defects. She was a tiny, few-week old baby struggling with pneumonia when she arrive and was near death many, many times. Her story is amazing - the miracles are enough to blow anyone's mind. And yet... and yet the chapter that she's living today is pretty amazing as well.

Sometimes she can be stubborn, we'll admit, but Lydia has a determination that has brought her so far. One of her nannies commented the other day, "It wasn't long ago when she was weak, her head bobbing, and she couldn't do anything. Now, did you see? She can walk!"

And walk she can...

Hooray for you, Lydia! We are so proud of you.
