9 years ago today, we walked into the hospital terrified, excited, and completely overwhelmed with the unknown. Your beautiful, precious, amazing birthmama (R) welcomed us into the labor room and gave us a baby shower for you...while she was in labor! We then waited in the waiting room for the announcement we will never forget...'she's here..she's here...and she is gorgeous...hurry, 'R' wants you to meet your daughter'. We rushed up to your room and there you were...in your sweet birthmommy's arms...as she handed you to us, she said, "Here is your new daughter." 'Your daughter'...those were the most beautiful words we had ever heard. It was all mommy and daddy could do not crumble in tears. You were so tiny, so beautiful, and the overwhelming joy of you was unbelievable. The depth of your adoption has forever changed us...it has forever opened our eyes to the absolute, unconditional love that the Lord has for us...to the understanding of what it means to truly be adopted by God.
Baby girl, we love you so much and are so proud that you are our daughter. Your ability to bring joy to anyone is amazing! You are a beautiful gift and we are so thankful that the Lord blessed us with you! Happy 9th birthday gorgeous one!
