Sooooo...Happy birthday to our little, miracle girl...Kinsley!
I did not know if God would ever bless me with the experience of having an infant again. He did!
All children are a true blessing from the Lord. I can not tell you what a huge blessing Kinsley has been to all of us, in our home. She came to us as a little baby who could hardly even move or see.
She has optic nerve hypoplasia and is missing optic nerves in both eyes. Her eyes roved back and forth all her waking hours. (nystagmus) She could not bring her eyes together and track. She did not respond to light and dark and would not look at anything. If you brought your hand up close to her eyes, she did not even blink or close them, in a protection response. Bless her heart.
Slowly, she started to bring her eyes together and started to focus on things. The nystagmus went away. Slowly she held toys and would look at us and smile.
She is so sweet and gentle natured, everyone loves her.
She had trouble reaching and getting to toys, so I would sit her in the laundry basket and fill it full of toys, so she just had to scoop with her arms and hands to try to get them.
She had so many feeding issues but God helped her conquer them as well.
Ever so slowly, by the grace of God she has blossomed.
She has a very hard time speaking and learning words. She is going to have to memorize every word she ever says, individually. She uses mostly sign language but only has a few words still to this day. But...she test out, cognitively, more than six months ahead of her age. She stated to potty train herself at a year and a half old.
She knows all her colors and likes to sort, organize and do puzzles.
She loves to dance and thinks she is such a big girl but still takes an occasional nap.
She is growing up fast.
A very girly girl!
She loves watching Blues Clues and Peppa Pig. She wanted a Peppa cake this year, so my wonderful sister did her thing and made Kinsley her dream cake! Thank you Aunt "S"
Happy Birthday to our little, sweetest, miracle princess!
All the Glory to God!
May God continue to do a miracle for you in your life and bring it to completion. May you love and serve Him all the days of your life!
James 1:17-18 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.
Love Dad, mom, Stephen, Antonio, William, Carolyn, Zeke, Elizabeth, Billy, Timothy and baby "A"
God has done a great work in her.
