On May 4th, 2006 you stepped into our lives.
I couldn’t have imagined life six years later.
You’ve taught me more about myself than anyone.
Mostly because you are a lot like me.
The good and the not-so-good.
You strive for excellence in every way.
And you are driven to do better each time.
You’ve grown so much this year.
I can hardly keep up.
You read books to me now.
And you love going to school.
The little notes you leave to us around the house make me smile.
You’re a good friend and your friends look up to you.
I love that you care for them deeply.
Most of all, I love how you love Jesus.
How you worship Him in your own way.
I’m so proud of the girl you’re becoming.
I pray that this year will be even better!
I love you so much,
