Our little girl is a year old! She didn't have the best day since she didn't sleep all night then had today's nap cut short! It wasn't until after 3:00 that I discovered a new tooth about to break through, no wonder she was a bit irritable! After some tylenol, anbesol, and a bottle she was a new person. Our neighbors (the Newton's) stopped by for a piece of cake and helped it to feel a little more festive around here. It was anawfully quiet birthday though.
It is hard to explain, but there is a cetain connection between her birth mother and I that is impossible to ignore on this important day. I felt like I needed to do something and yet I really wanted it to remain personal (between me and her other mother - figuratively). So this morning I lit a candle and let it burn all day until it burnt itself out. I pray that where ever she is tonight that God will give her peace in her heart. That she will know her baby girl is safe and loved!
