Happy Birthday Mandy!!

It's the big 10...double digits! Our sweet Mandy girl is celebrating her day. On this given day of Mandy's birth, I cannot help but reflect on her life. Oh, How I wish that we had known her as a baby... gotten to see her first step, hear her first word, and surround her with the love she so deserves. Reality is that we weren't given that chance; however, we have been blessed with loving her now. God lead our hearts to hers, and He is growing us together as a family. I stand amazed at the changes and growth that we see happening in our girl. She is growing closer to us, finding her place in the family, and learning to express her feelings in appropriate ways. As time moves forward, she is learning to trust us, and we are watching her change before our eyes both physically and emotionally. Her passion is for dance, Ballet! She works hard at her studies and at her dance. We cannot wait to see how God will lead her to use her talent for Him. She is a talented, graceful, gentle, beautiful young woman. We love you our Mandy girl!
