The sweet birthday girl

Princess Sunshine turns 10 today.

What a sweet girl she is, soft spoken and quiet...though she didn't grow in my womb, she certainly has grown in all of our hearts.

We have seen healing in her life this past year, new levels of confidence and trust. Her life started out harsh and full of abuse, but God rescued her and lovingly placed her into our arms, forever through adoption.

We are grateful to God for our little Princess Sunshine...we continue to build her up and wait on God for healing she needs to receive.

WE love you sweetheart, happy birthday!
