If you've followed our story for long, you know Paige has kept a smile on her face throughout this journey. Yes, sometimes it was a "smile on demand" as she likes to call it--but a smile nonetheless. That smile represents incredible strength, courage, and hope that can only be found in God. I fully believe He has equipped this girl with every bit of physical, mental, and spiritual strength she has needed for this journey. Recently we've caught a few glimpses of the independent, fearless girl we once knew slowly making her way back to us. It's pretty awesome to behold.
Three weeks ago, Paige joined 27 other Sunshine Kids teens--with staff and medical reps, but without parents--on a Texas Hill Country Adventure. Talk about getting back into that independent mode! They were treated to a week of fun, fellowship, and fantastic experiences. What a way to celebrate the work being done in all of these incredible kiddos! It's said a picture is worth a thousand words. Take a look at just a few images from that week...you might find there simply aren't enough words.
