7 precious years...


Oh how excited you have been for today to come my sweet girl- and now here it is and you are 7 years old!! Part of me wants to scream at time to stop- and yet I am so proud of the smart, talented, strong, beautiful little girl you continue to become. When I remember back to 6 and a half years ago when they first placed you in my arms I cannot help but to be thankful for every single day we have had together. My sweet princess, your life has changed me in more ways than I could ever even begin to explain. Because of you, my eyes were opened wide- and I am forever grateful. There has always been something special about you- this gentle spirit and tender heart. I love how you are drawn to those who are hurting and have this way of making them feel loved. I know God is going to use that gift to bring others to him. So today my beautiful Guatemalan angel we celebrate you and who you are.
Happy 7th birthday. I love you more than you will ever know.
