Eleven in '11

Dear Abbey,

August 23, 2000 at 8:40pm you arrived in this world.  That was eleven years ago and you have not stopped blessing our lives.  You are a light in this world that shines so brightly.  You are outgoing and friendly and almost always smiling.  Your smile and personality are contagious.  If you're afraid of something you don't really show it.  You accept challenges and tackle them head on.  You have grown and changed so much in this last year.  You are no longer my little girl, but a young lady.  Your desire to follow Him is so uplifting and I hope that feeling continues to grow and influence others around you.  May this new adventure in middle school be full of exciting and happy memories.  We love you very much Abbey Rose!

Wow...what a beautiful young lady - inside and out. It has been a joy and blessing to watch her grow up these past 11 years. Slow down sweet Abbey Rose and enjoy 11. Adulthood wll be here soon enough!
