I just want to say Thank you...For ALL these many years that you continue to do what you do. It makes a difference! I am sure at least a couple hundred people read this post....and were inspired by it.

So...Thank you. Even though sometimes I am too tired ...or just too lazy to say it...I REALLY admire YOU. and ALL you do. YOU make a difference in my life...and you have....for a long time:)

Her Birthday looked SO full of what EVERY child's special day should look like! After a long day in NICU..taking care of "abstinence" babies...( Withdrawing from various drugs) it warms my heart so much to see what a completely majical childhood experience you are giving to your little baby girl! I have said it before...but if the world were FULL of people like you and Andy..what a wonderful world it would be! XXXOOO I LOVED her dress by the way...she rocked it...and the hat!
