Whirlwind!

The last 2 days have been such a whirlwind!  I don't want to ramble, so forgive me if I do.  I mentioned last week that some exciting things were on the horizon for Cortney? The first thing was her getting an opportunity to model for a boutique called, Princess Tutu's.  They are selling tutus for wheelchair bound kids.  They are so cute without all of the extra material! Cortney's pictures can be found HERE on her Facebook page and HERE at her Etsy shop.  





And then an even more amazing thing happened....Cerebral Palsy Family Network shared this collage of pictures on their Facebook page.


Cortney has had over 60,000 shares!  I have been answering private messages and e-mails for the past 2 days! So many wonderful people have offered Cort opportunities to model for them.  A modeling agency has offered a free year to sign up with them.  My head is spinning. My thoughts are flying every which way!  I am truly touched by people's generosity and kind spirits.  I never in a million years thought a couple of images of my daughter could have such a positive affect on people.
My emotions range from excitement to a bit of fear. This is wonderful and scary all at the same time.  I need to take a deep breath and roll with it.  Cortney face is a reminder that beauty comes in many forms.  And one of my favorite comments on Facebook is, "God doesn't make mistakes." She was meant for great things. Thank you all for taking this roller coaster of a journey with me. For allowing me the luxury of dreaming...and rambling....and sharing. :)
