Happy Birthday Abby!

Dear Abby,

 In the days leading up to your birthday, we always remember and talk about the day we met you.  We were so proud of you!  What a tiny fighter you were.  Too small to touch and yet possessing a will to live, outweighing anything we've ever seen.  You even surprised your doctors!

Now you are 9 years old and so mature.  You have grown quite a bit this year since having your reflux surgery. You are now 41 lbs.  Your sweet face has a wise look, and we've noticed you making some new facial expressions too.  Each day you make efforts at communicating with us, although we are slow to learn your language.  Thank you for being patient with us.

One day, when we are in heaven, we will sit and talk together.  Then we will know all the things you were thinking and feeling, and the dreams you had, and things you were afraid of.  But for now we want you to know how very much we love you!  How richly you have blessed your Daddy and me!  How we cherish your Big sister role in our family.  How we are still very proud you!

We love you Sweetheart!  Happy 9th Birthday!!
