Birthday Girl


Today Samantha turns 2 years old. I cannot believe that only two years ago we were in the hospital, after months of anticipation, holding our perfect little miracle. She is a beam of light in our home. The room lights up when she smiles or giggles. Her laughter is infectious and her spirit is incredibly tender and sweet. Samantha's drive and determination to accomplish whatever it is that she wants is so admirable. She teaches me everyday. I feel blessed to have such a wonderful little lady in my life. At least once a week we are stopped by people who know Samantha somehow. On Saturday, it was by a woman who gives Samantha her shots at the Health Clinic. I didn't recognize her, but she sure recognized Samantha. There are plenty of others. I have to say, at first I thought that it was easy for them to remember Samantha because she looks so different from other kids. But with the progression of time, I have come to realize that there is much more to Samantha. We've always known that -- but my realization was that others see that too. They feel her spirit. They are drawn in by her smile and her engaging big blue eyes.
I love her completely and with my whole heart -- and because of Samantha, my heart is much bigger than I ever thought imaginable.

I love you sweetheart!


Happy Birthday Punkin!


You're our little star!
