A Special Message From "Bellamy’s Buddies"

Bellamy has changed our lives in so many wonderful ways. She works hard to meet all of her milestones and brings so much laughter and silliness to our home and everyone she meets. She loves people so everywhere she goes she's waving and saying hi. We know that if we have to be out and about but don't feel like socializing, that is not the day to bring Bellamy with us. She makes friends wherever she goes. :) It's been challenging to juggle the therapies and appointments with all of the everyday stuff but it's taught us to just handle things a day at a time and go with the flow. We don't plan too far ahead on things that aren't necessary and that has taught us to just let God be our ultimate planner and lead us where he needs us to be. Bellamy's support team is amazing. We've found an amazing pediatrician that partners with us, an OT that challenges Bellamy the way she needs to be challenged, and a speech therapist that teaches her how to play and work at the same time. She is also thriving at her daycare where all of her friends have fully embraced her and her teachers are her biggest cheerleaders. We are so blessed that God has placed these amazing people in our lives to support and advocate for Bellamy. We've also found that some of our greatest support in this journey has been friends that have become family. God gives us a biological family but also gives us a chosen family to help mold us into the people He needs us to be at that time in our lives.
