The Princess and The Prosthetic

Did We Make the Right Choice?

June 18, 2021 in Warrior Princess - No Comments

I always wonder if we made the right decision.

Ten years ago we were faced with an impossible choice. Put our baby girl through multiple grueling surgeries in an attempt to fashion a viable leg for her……
Or do an amputation and have her fitted for a prosthetic leg?

It’s not a decision that you can flip a coin to make or one that’s made easily.  It’s one we prayed on, wrestled over, researched the hell out of, and debated for months.

And so over the years, I’ve always looked for “signs” that we made the right decision.


I had one this past week when we did our annual pictures in the sunflower fields. Callie asked our photographer to specifically take this shot to “show off” her prosthetic. She wanted the blade to be the focal point of the picture–the star of the show if you will. She was PROUD of it and wanted to celebrate that part of herself.

At that moment, in a sunflower field in Texas during sunset, my mama heart sang.

We truly did the best thing for her.

There wasn’t a better alternative.

She was whole.

Just the way she was.

Hi Y'all! I’m Jaime, a proud working mama, author, girl boss and wifey to an ultra-adorable husband. I am a huge book nerd, I drink coffee like my life depends on it, and run on dry shampoo and Amazon Prime. Leopard print is my favorite color. I am a story teller at heart and this blog is a virtual scrapbook of our crazy beautiful life. I'm a Type One Diabetic and our little warrior princess Callie is a lower limb amputee. By sharing how we’ve chosen to flourish in the garden we’ve been planted in, we hope you can take some small nuggets of hope, inspiration, and laughter. We are so grateful that you’ve found us—welcome to the fam. We embrace our perfectly imperfect lives and don’t let the doctor’s appointments, spreadsheets, speaking engagements, 10th birthday parties to plan, housework or date nights overwhelm us. Those things are just the beautiful reminders of all the blessings in our lives. Read More
