Over the years, three more beautiful girls have joined the family (and I remember the circumstances surrounding each one of their announcements and births) plus two nephews....they have healed me in ways I didn't know I needed healing. They taught me that a person didn't have to be born of me for me to love them so much, they have physical traits similar to mine and they all love me with a ferocious love. When my boys came home, I don't there was any group of people happier than their cousins.
Happy 10th Birthday to my wonderful niece. Zia loves you more than you'll ever know!
