You pulled in my driveway and stole my whole world.

The wonder of you being here, with me, well it still catches me by surprise and takes my breath away.

How can it be that 5 years have flown by?

Your Gotcha Day is more then just the day you came home to us.  It's the day my world began.  The moment I laid eyes on you I knew that I would never be the same.


Mama, Mommy, Mom.

It's a name I hear hundreds of times each day, but you gave it to me.

The greatest gift I've ever been given.

You're growing.

Changing, maturing, becoming who you will be.

You aren't my chubby cheeked baby anymore, but you're becoming something greater.

A sidekick, a friend.  Someone I enjoy spending my days with.

Sometimes I watch you living this life and my mind slips back to where you almost ended up.

You could have not been here.  With me.

I don't like to think about it, but it's good to remember.  This life we have, you and me, we don't deserve it.  It's a gift.

Grace at it's absolute finest.

You are everything I ever dreamed of my sweet Josie Kathryn.  Better then I knew was possible.

I will never forget the first moment I saw you.

The moment you were mine.

Happy Gotcha Day Josie Kathryn.  I'm so, so glad you are mine.
