Marking the moment it all began

Belle takes advantage of the camera to show off a few of her modeling moves.

Belle shows off a few modeling moves in early September.

My niece Belle began her cancer journey four years ago today — Sept. 24, 2009. She was two months shy of two and a half years old. She is now two months shy of six and a half years old. Six is an age we weren’t sure she would see, but we are thankful for every year, month, week and day.

It’s hard to describe how much God has taught us and how much we have grown through the journey. Belle is an amazing child with the strength to face each battle, the silliness to make every moment fun and the sassiness to keep everyone around her mesmerized.
