Happy Birthday, Darling Girl!


Can it be?
Is it your birthday?
Again...already???


I remember as though it were yesterday...
Your Dad and I received the call from the adoption agency.
After five long years of waiting for you,
 finally, you were waiting for us.
I cannot describe the total giddiness that call caused.
We had been watching our progress on the "list" and
fully expected one more year of waiting.
Then, out of the blue (heaven???) there you were!
And now, after what seems a long/fast road,
you're all grown up.


Your imagination was always obvious.

Your smile could always melt my heart.


Your talent was/is abundant.


Humor me and let me share one of my favorite pictures of you!
(By the way, I couldn't find a picture of you at the piano.
Remember the year you took violin, flute AND piano lessons,
...every week?


I love holiday time with you!


And vacation times!
Oh, the places we've been!


But most of all,
I love you!
Happiest of days, darling Kate.
You are the sunshine of my life.

Ahhhhh......this brought tears to my eyes as the love you have for each other is so obvious! How sweet and precious! The 'new has never worn off' my girl, either.
This is one of the best post I have read this day.
Thank you for sharing the lovely pictures of your darling daughter through the years. You have all the bragging rights in the world,my dear!

Oh, this was so touching. I just had to write you. I have to tell you we too waited 4 1/2 yrs for our daughter! Then I saw the picture of your daughter's box on the deck, mine used to make tents under the coffee table. She was lucky enough to start playing violin in 7th grade, played all thru HS, and has been with a symphony orchestra now for five years. We are very blessed women to have beauitful and very talented daughters. Enjoy her day, Annette T
