One year ago today I met you face to face. I had spent nine months prior wondering what you'd look like, but one year ago I finally found out.
Grandpa and Grandma left Michigan at 4:00 am that morning to drive here, but the relief I felt knowing where your brothers were and who was caring for them in the meantime made the craziness of the unexpected day that much smoother.
And one year later, I still can't stop holding you and kissing you.
You brought me great joy when I discovered you came to be. You brought me great joy when I discovered you were a girl. You brought me great joy when I first looked at you. And you'll always bring me great joy simply because you'll be mine and I'll be yours.
You and me... joyfully family because the Lord wonderfully formed you and graciously gave you to me.
Happy One Year Birthday, Baby Girl!
