One year ago, we were preparing for Josie's hand surgery to remove her extra thumb. Many of you know that she was born with a heart condition, but she was also born with two thumbs on her right hand.
We scheduled this purposely over Christmas break so that we could help Josie adjust to being in a fingertip-to-shoulder cast.
Her surgery scar has really faded and without looking back at her hand pictures, I tend to forget that she even had a special extra thumb.
I'm so glad to have the majority of Josie's major medical issues behind us now.
When I think back to everything we went through our first year home with Josie , I'm surprised she's as well adjusted as she is.
We can't wait to see you open gifts with two hands this year!!
