Li'l Empress is THREE!

On our journey to you, we learned new levels of trust
in our Father. We learned how to cling more whole-heartedly
as He worked in us a deeper faith. We learned how to wait
actively while still walking toward the dream that He'd given.

On our journey with you, we are learning to laugh more easily
and love more deeply. We are learning truer compassion and
greater sensitivity to those around us who struggle with
various needs. We are learning better team work
and selflessness for the good of those we love.

We love you and are so proud of the wonderful,
and sweet little girl that you are becoming.
Your great big personality is such a joy to everyone
who gets the privilege of meeting you.
Your exuberant hugs and kisses and
"I lub you's" are cherished more than you know.
You have expanded our hearts and our world.
And every day, we thank God for the gift of you!

 Happy Birthday, Li'l Empress!
