My baby

This beautiful little girl turned 8 today. Man, what a confusing age. Boys are chasing her, she is worried about school, she is realizing there are social classes and injustices in the world, and she wants to fix it all. She is self conscious, and unsure of herself. But yet, knows who she is and right from wrong. She is too old to play barbies, but too young to have a cell phone. She tries her best to please her parents, but yet, wants to have her own voice and opinion.

I love this little girl with my whole heart.

I wish I could protect her from the world.

I wish she knew how special and precious she is.

I hope she finds her own happiness in this uprooted life we give her.

I hope I give her everything she needs.

She is my baby.
