Zoey and Sophie

Tomorrow we are going to Shriners and are going to meet the little girl who has the same leg as Zoey.

Months ago, we had to decide what type of leg we wanted, skin color or funky fabric. We chose a fabric but after we went home to think about it, I started to have second thoughts. I asked an online parent group for photos of their children's legs. Much to my surprise, one mom sent her blog link and there was her daughter with a leg that had same fabric that we had just chosen for Zoey!

It took awhile to figure it all out, but we finally realized that this same little girl, Sophie, is treated at the same Shriners that we go to. And it was her leftover fabric that we had chosen from the bin! Not only that, but at our first visit to Shriners there was a photo of a girl on a surfboard that had made a deep impression on me and had given me such hope. That little girl and Sophie were one and the same!

Her mom and I managed to get appointments for the same day and that big day is tomorrow! We can't wait!

And yes, I'll be taking my camera. Hopefully the girls won't be too shy to pose.

I CANNOT wait to see if the Sophie is the Sophie I know who came from New Day! Deep down I know it's her as I know she had the same fabric as your Zoey! (I think I had given her mom a link to a cool fabric online store where she found dit.) If her mom is Tami ... it's gotta be her! Hope the meeting goes super-duper well! SO excited for you all.
