We found out you were coming in September 1997. March 2, 1998 I found out that my greatest dream had came true, I was finally getting the daughter I had so desperately long for, wanted and waited for. June 4th, 1998 I held you in my arms and I knew right then and there my life was perfect, I had you. Bouncing curls and toothless grins made up your first 5 years, then it was on to barbies and clothes, boys, shoes and your iPhone. The past 16 years have went by with a blink of an eye and I watched you turn into a beautiful beauty of a young girl, who loves with all her heart, always sticks up for those whom she loves. You will never know just how happy and fulfilled you have made my life being able to watch you grow up before my eyes. You have blessed me beyond anything I could ever ask for, your a blessing to every single person who knows you.
Happy Birthday my Darling. I pray your day is filled with nothing but good tears, wonderful people and good memories! I look forward to seeing you grow into adulthood, becoming a wonderful nurturing nurse that will be able to touch other peoples lives like you have touched ours. I look forward to more bouncing curls and toothless grins from your children, because, like me, they will be lucky to have you.
I love you Delaney, you, like your brothers, are my heart, my soul, my only reason for living.
