A mother’s social media post

“Saw my gorgeous daughter walk without a limp for the first time yesterday (3 months post total hip replacement). It only took 19 years, multiple surgeries, 6 months in various body casts and rivers of tears (mine) but she’s finally there. She endured so much without letting it get her down and facing it with a smile even before she could speak. It’s true “That which does not break us, makes us stronger”. I’m so proud of my strong, smart, independent, compassionate, beautiful daughter that the rivers of tears will continue but for good reasons. Love you so much baby girl!”
