While it breaks my heart to miss this very important milestone, I am so thankful that this is the only birthday I will miss. And while we can't celebrate WITH you, we can still celebrate YOU! You are a daughter, a sister, a granddaughter, a niece, and a friend. You are a child of God, and we are so thankful He has entrusted us with you. We can't wait to bring you home, but until then, we send you our love you and pray for you every day.
We sent you a birthday cake, some new clothes, and a book so hopefully you will get to enjoy those sometime today. We hope that they bring you joy and help you to know that we love and care for you. Happy Birthday little ladybug!
