Can it be?
Is it your birthday?
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,
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.
