Our youngest turned ten in February, several days after I turned forty. We of course celebrated together when we went to Bryce Canyon, but we also helped her celebrate on her actual birthday.
I am so proud of this little girl. She has not had an easy time in her short ten years and she continues to struggle. But when she smiles, the whole world lights up. She is funny, smart and stubborn. All amazing qualities that bring excitement to our family.
As she turns this corner to the double digits, I am curious to see how the next ten years go. She has come so far, but struggles so much to see her life as safe and loving. My prayer for her is to find peace in who she is. She is a girl who is loved, she is smart, she is caring of others, she is our daughter forever.
Oh, and she absolutely loves clothes!
We love you!
