Where did the time fly to? When you came to our home you gave me a new name. Mama. I was so excited to have you come be a part of our family. After years of wanting a wee one and watching friends and family have children I was finally able to have a little one of my own.
Every day we watched you grow and we loved you more and more. Even though you had a tough start you never let things stop you or slow you down.
Then the day came when you started asking for a "baby scissor", Dada and I were talking about another child and we weren't sure what we wanted. When the social worker asked you you didn't hesitate. You announced you NEEDED a "baby scissor". And then you looked at her with those baby blue eyes and she told you that you will get one.
You changed, just like we all did when she came home. You knew instinctively that she requires more time and attention. You have unselfishly given of your time and pitched in when needed. Sometimes I feel terrible that I can't give you my 100% but you never complain. You just hug me harder.
I love you more than words can say. You are my everything and my all. I am proud of you.
