This silly, beautiful, strong, hard-headed, little girl turned 5 years old today!
I still can't believe it has been 5 years since we were looking at this miracle laying in the NICU at Baptist wondering what battles were ahead of her. I can say today, Callie has been through more than most grown adults but she has been so strong and fearless through it all.
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11
Mommy and Daddy love you sweet girl! Always remember through everything hard and great the Lord is with you and if you just trust him, he will take you some great places:)
Happy 5th Birthday, Callie Ann Carver!!!
