2.5 weeks since our last surgery and I’ve just been trying not to think about it.
But what inspired me this past week was seeing Princess Eugenie proudly embrace her scoliosis surgery scar on her wedding day.
Naya has significantly more scars now. She doesn’t like them. The ones in her tummy especially. She hates seeing them. I haven’t done a recently tally but we are close to 20 scars now.
She is getting to an age where she is more aware of herself. She touches the scar on her scalp when she looks in the mirror. She doesn’t like me looking at the scars on her tummy.
My hope is that one day she will wear her surgery scars proudly. That she’ll realize they tell a story of how strong she is. And how amazing and blessed she is. That her scars are beautiful. And she is beautiful – inside and out. ❤️
My angel. My superhero. My miracle.
