My sweet Eva.
I can’t promise that this surgery will be your last, as a matter of fact I know it won’t be. You will need to have another one on your heart sometime when you are a young woman, that is if your heart doesn’t tell us that it needs to be intervened sooner. Until then we will be focused on staying on top of every doctor/specialist appointments. Yes my love, other girls that have turners syndrome have no signs or symptoms of it, but don’t forget that some girls won’t be able to take their first breath and you did, but it came with a price. Some girls fight to have a better body, you fight to keep yours. Some girls fight to not have their hearts broken, you fight to keep yours beating. You have had to fight harder than most to live so don’t ever take that for granted. After this surgery you will have another battle scar so wear it with pride because some girls care more about not having an imperfection but your “imperfections” perfect you.
Don’t loose that fire in your spirit that drives your mommy, daddy and brother crazy. We know that same fire is the reason we have you today. Don’t loose that funny laugh that forces you to tuck your chin in because we know you deserve to laugh after everything you have gone through. Don’t loose that sweet smile because you light up our days knowing you are with us and you didn’t have to be. God put us all together because He knew we needed each other, and we go through all these hardships because He knows we need Him, we always will. You are never alone my love.
My sweet love, you were born with turners syndrome, but that is not who you are. You are not a syndrome, you are not fragile, you are not a sad story. What you are my sweet love, is a Devereux. You are a warrior. You are unbreakable. You are solid and you are made with the unyielding love of our Father Lord Jesus.
