Dearest ,
I want you to know that I loved you before the moment the door opened and there you stood. I know your Dad loves to tell you this story of how he felt. But I wanted to tell you mine. I knew when we got the call and they sent over the photo that you were my kid. Your picture stirred my heart and I knew I was prepared to do anything and everything to bring you home to us.
I love the way you are growing up. I admire your kind and generous spirit. I love the way you will persevere. You taught yourself to ride a bike, to do cartwheels, to draw, and so many other things. You are soft spoken, but strong and unafraid. I like that about you. I like that you can turn things around and make something out of nothing. I like that you are learning to go your own way and not listen too much to friends.
I am proud of you. I admire you. I love you with all my heart and soul. There is no one like you in all of the world. You are the best and I am so very blessed that GOD chose me to be your mother.
Happiest of Birthdays!

That was a beautiful open letter. It's something she can always look back upon and cherish, because it came from from her mama's heart.

Happy (if belated) Natal Day your precious Briana!

Snatch JOY!
