It is hard to believe that you have been alive for so long now. So much has changed in 7 years.
I remember,vividly getting to kiss you before you went to the NICU. I remember washing my hands so many times before I could see you. I remember taking you home. I vividly remember your smell your soft skin, your deep eyes. I remember just taking you in.
You changed my life. Saved it even. You were truly sent from heaven and everyday I am thankful that I am your mother.
You are so strong, so independent so smart.
I look at you amazed at your patience at your grace and your love. Watching you grow and learn has been the most amazing thing. Seeing you change and seeing the world through your eyes has been such a gift.
Thank you for being such a great person. Such a kind girl. Such a wonderful sister. Such and amazing daughter.
You will never know how very much I love you.
