Many of you have been following my blog for some time and have been so incredibly supportive of my daughter, Cortney. ModelSource Magazine did a photo shoot with her yesterday and she is now listed as one of their Elite Models. Can you believe it?! I am so over the moon about this!
So much of her life has been struggle upon struggle. She has had to overcome so much. I've had to overcome so much. As a parent of a special needs child, you feel sometimes like all you do is fight. Fight with the schools. Fight with doctors. Fight with insurance companies. Fight with van dealerships, and sometimes the general public's ignorance. My girl has had to fight with her own body and mind to accomplish things. Just learning to hold her head up, grasp an object, tell her mama that she loves her. ; ) And one by one she conquered those obstacles. Cortney is not your typical 17 year old, but she is special. She is beautiful. She brings a smile to anyone's face who meets her. Her being lights up a room.... God certainly had a plan for her.
So meet the newest Elite Model! : D
My heart goes pitter patter everytime I look at her......
Have a great weekend my friends!
