Our little angel is 7 months old today! Seven whole months! I can hardly believe it!!
The past 7 months have been filled with lots of firsts - first smiles, first words, first teeth, first foods, and now that she is learning to crawl it won't be long before we add "first steps" to that list. I wouldn't have traded a single second and I feel blessed to have her living here with us! It just amazes me how quickly time flies ....before we know it she will be celebrating her 1st birthday!
Something else that amazes me though is this, knowing that for the past 7 months neither my grand daughter's father (or his family) have bothered to see how she is doing. Not one word from either of them! The last time they saw her she was hooked up to IV and had a whole list of medical concerns. Yet, neither of them have been concerned enough to follow up.
I guess I just don't understand a person knowing that they have a daughter/grand daughter in the world but not wanting anything to do with her. It's so sad! So heartless! Seven months of her life that they can never get back - all those memories they will never know.
I realize it is their loss, but I can't help but feel sorry for my grand daughter...because no matter how you slice it, the day will come when she'll have questions about them. "Where's my Daddy?" "Didn't he love me?"
Oh I know that one day, please God, some wonderful young man will come along to love my daughter and grand daughter far more than that creep ever could. Far more than him or his family are capable of.
My grand daughter will have a "Dad" to cheer at her soccer games, bring flowers to her concerts, dance with her at Grad, and to walk her down the aisle. She deserves to be loved like that! They both deserve to be loved like that! And I have faith that they will!
But yet, when those sparkling blue eyes look into mine, and she smiles so innocently at me, sometimes it saddens me just a little. It saddens me to know that her precious little heart has already been scarred and there wasn't a darn thing we could do to stop it.
