Happy Birthday to my little pumpkin. She is turning 9 today. I can hardly believe it. I can still see clearly in my mind..... 7:11 a.m. on June 12, 1999 - I am holding her in my arms for the very first time. She is awake and alert. My husband is standing behind me looking down at us. She has a full head of dark hair and she looks at us, me and him, like she has known us along, as if to say.... hi mom, hi dad. That scene is imprinted on my brain forever and it has been my pleasure ever since. Happy Birthday..... thank you for making my world a magical place.
