Letter to Ananya
My Dear, Sweet Ananya,
Two years have flown by. Two years ago we were united as a family of 4. I can't believe how the time has flown by. It seems like you have been with us forever.
The last 2 years have been filled with some of the happiest, the most stressful, the scariest moments of my life.
I've watched you grow from this little baby to this little girl. I've seen you change from a child who can't crawl to a girl that can do anything. I've seen you learn to crawl and try to walk. I've watched you learn signs and then refuse to use them.
I've never been as scared as the times you've had botox. I dread those days. You, however, are fine. You are such a brave girl. You get IVs and never flinch.
Today we celebrated your 4th birthday.
Happy Birthday Princess!
I hope that today was good for you. I hope everyday is good for you. You amaze me on a daily basis. I can't imagine my life without your smile. Always remember you are a strong girl. You can do anything. Your daddy and I will never stop to get you what you need. You can always lean on us and your brothers. We are a family.
I can't thank your birthmother enough. She made a brave decision. To give you a chance with a new family was brave. I'm so thankful we are blessed to be your family. I wish I could tell Rina what a wonderful child you are. I know she is a beautiful woman to have such a beautiful daughter. Your strength started with your birthmother.
Happy Birthday my sweet baby girl.
