what magic looks like

When I first introduced Scarlet to you in THIS POST, I mentioned leaning on her momma for insight.  Scarlet is unable to communicate and I wanted learn all I could about this precious child in my short time there.

I wanted to see Scarlet through the eyes and heart of her momma.

And my heart melt a million times over when Jenny described Scarlet.  She spoke of her sweet spirit and how it leaves a mark on the people around her.

Scarlet is deaf and has a number of other limitations due to Schinzel Giedion syndrome.  Touch is her strongest sense and as I watched mom and dad interact with Scarlet, I witnessed a tenderness that took my breath away.

The Wagners have gone to great lengths to create an environment for their daughter that speaks of All Things Little Girl, not illness.  Despite the medical equipment.  Despite the extra care Scarlet requires.

What they really want is a home suitable for Scarlet.  To make the most of the time they have with her.

Before meeting Scarlet, Jenny told me there was something magical about her daughter.
