Reunited!!

My reunion with Annie was glorious and heartbreaking all at the same time. Knowing that she’s safe and back home is such a huge relief, but seeing her in her current state is such a terrible feeling. 

Annie was missing for 25 days and it seems that she was fending for herself that whole time. She has grown a little, her frame is definitely larger. However, she is pretty much skin and bones. My poor Annie girl has sores and bites all over and is definitely more timid than she was before. No matter how many times anyone says, “You did everything you could.” Or, “It’s not your fault.” I feel so helpless seeing my baby girl like this. 

While Annie is not in the healthiest condition, her spirit hasn’t changed much at all. She is still my affectionate and sweet Annie girl, which I am so grateful for. 

Thank you all so much for the positive vibes, prayers, and support over the past (almost) month. I’m completely blown away by how many people showed empathy for Annie and me. We attribute our miracle to all of you. 

My thoughts at this moment…”Thank god she recognizes me!”

Annie’s thoughts at this moment…”Moooomm! I can’t breathe!”

She still loves to give kisses 🙂

  1. Whenever things don’t turn out as we wished, it is inevitable that we ask ourselves “what if I had done this or that differently”. We wonder if the pain could have been avoided and blame ourselves for not doing whatever it is that we can think of only now, with the benefit of hindsight. While these feelings are normal, this may be burning energy that would be much better directed to what we can do now to make things better that we actually have control over. Accepting what is, while learning and moving forward, is best for everyone.
