We are going with 10 years old.  At least for now.  Who knows . . . we never really will know?

I am going to guess that my daughter has never had a birthday party or present or cake.  Probably never in her life.

I always ponder my boys births on the eve of their birthday.  Such precious memories.  I love thinking about those sweet baby boys.  Their smell and little feet, soft skin and tiny hands.  LOVE!

The girls it is different because I was not there.  I have NO idea how it all went.  Were they born in a hospital?  Probably not, but I don't know.  Who was at the birth?  Was it hidden?  Was the decision made to give them up before or after their birth . . . so many questions.  So on this eve of Evelyn's birth I imagine . . .

Tonight I think of Evelyns birth mom.  I bet she thinks of her around her birthday (probably everyday)  but I can't imagine not knowing where my baby was and if she was O.K.  I would give so much to let her know that our daughter is loved and cherished and being cared for.  Our daughter . . . what a crazy thing to say.

Yep look at OUR beautiful daughter.

Thank you!  Thank you! Thank you!  a thousand times more for giving this girl life.  I bet she gets her big ol'  smile from you.
