May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13
My Ruby Girl
Ruby, she is getting so big. She is 13 years old and weighed 18 pounds this February when she was rescued. Now she has little chubby upper legs and she's got little fat rolls on her stomach. Not what most people think when they see her, but she is our living miracle. She weighs 28 lbs .
She loves to sit on the rocking chair for hours singing to herself.
This past week we have put her in her foot braces all day long. She used to throw herself a little fit when we put them on her. On Monday we put them on her and decided she needed to start wearing them all day weather she likes it or not. On Tuesday we took all the kids out on the soccer field to play, I had Ruby by her hands and was leading her around.
One time the ball rolled over to her and she kicked it. After that wherever the ball went she was chasing after it as fast as her little wobbly legs would let her. She would try to run but only managed little hopping steps.
The happiness in her eyes told me that she was so happy to be like one of the other kids. She wasn't just sitting on a chair watching the world go by, she was involved in it. What a blessing!!
You know what, ever since then she wakes up and wants us to put her foot braces on. She leaves them on all day without ever asking us to take them off. She doesn't talk but her ways of communication are pretty distinct.
This morning when I got her up she had her foot braces on, She had put herself to bed last night and never asked anyone to take them off. I am so happy that she realizes that they are helping her walk.
Before she seemed to think we were punishing her by putting them on her but now she chooses to use them. I am so proud of her. God certainly has blessed us with a beautiful little life.
Please be in prayer for her, Pray that she will walk soon and she won't get discouraged, Also her teeth are really bad, a couple days ago two of her teeth broke off. Every morning when she wakes up her night shirt is stained with blood from her teeth that bleed. We are trying to find a dentist that will fix her teeth, but they are so bad we really don't know where to start. Thank you and God bless!!!!
