Listen carefully. Can you hear what I am hearing? I'll give you a hint. Its the most wonderful sound in the world.
With Veronica's lip healed up and her palate closed, she has been babbling and practicing different sounds. She had been making random mamamama sounds. But, at the supper table, she pointed right at me and said, "Mama!" Then, just to be sure everyone knew how clever she was, she repeated it several times.
There's not a whole lot in this world that can fill a heart with more joy than that.
