“A new year of your life has begun. I wish you all the love and care for your future. Happy Birthday little G, may you have a wonderful life ahead.”
It is hard to believe I have not known this family forever. I bet everyone who meets them feels that same way. They have a kindness and sincerity that radiates out and invites others in. Their love for their family is so authentic it is hard not to sign up for adoption (even at 36 years old!). On this special day, they celebrated the birthday of their daughter Giuliana. Two and counting. At first G was reluctant to leave her family as the flood of new friends arrived (as any little one would be). Slowly, the tight grip turned into a light hand hold, then eventually she was just barely holding Dads finger. And then, just like that, G was having cupcakes with friends and checking out the other little ones at the party.
Thank you R family for having me there to celebrate and document the events in your wonderful little ones life. It is such a pleasure to be a part of it.
