Happy Double Digits!!

Dear Abby,

I can’t believe you are already ten years old. A lot has changed since we first met you a little over 4 years ago. You were a few months shy of being 6.

I’ll never forget those first moments of seeing you during those uncertain times. God has brought you so far these past 4 years. You have matured and grown so much since you came to live with us.

I’m sorry you have been through all that you have. But, I’m thankful you are allowing God to shape you and mold you. You, sweet girl, are allowing Him to use your story to help others. I am so proud of you!

It has been a long road, but I see you relax and trust a little more each day. You have taught me so much. And, I’m so so thankful that we have gotten to celebrate the past two birthdays with you. We’ve missed so much time together, but God is allowing us to make up for lost time.

I don’t even want to think about the fact that you will be 18 in just 8 years. I know the time will fly by so quickly. I plan on cherishing each moment that we have together. No matter how old you get, you will always be my daughter. I love you more than you could ever imagine.

Love Always,

Mommy 💓
