An Open Birthday Letter to our lil’ Beauties for their 21st birthday!
I had thought about this Open Birthday Letter to our lil’ Beauties for a while now. Although they hear how we feel about them, I wanted to put it in an open letter to share!
I always think of the day that God placed our two beauties in our lives. We had prayed every day, hoping & wishing that one day we would have another child to add to our clan. Wouldn’t having a daughter be wonderful, we thought, but we would be grateful if it were a boy. I use to joke & say that we would probably have twins since twins run on both sides of our families. Never in a million years did I think that God would place not one but two beautiful little girls into our lives.
I think about all the emotions that we went through for a long time, not just with each other but with those that supported us & prayed for us. We will always be grateful for that too!
We didn’t want to miss any moments, so my camera was out & ready to capture all your little milestones. By now, even at 21 years old, you both still expect me to document all your moments.
We weren’t a family of four anymore, and we were now a family of 6! Our older two, Leann & Johnny, were so amazing & sweet to their sisters. It was like they had always been here. You two have the most fantastic relationship with your nephew RJ; so happy y’all are so close. Our lives are so different & filled with SO much love & joy even more so.
Miranda & Gabriella, you have completed our lives more than you’ll ever know. Our prayers were answered, & for that, we thank God every day for that. We love you so very much to the moon and back and infinity.
Gabriella Bo, you have this creative soul, and you create with such beauty. You are so content with just being by yourself at times, drawing, doing makeup, or creating music videos. Even though you are a daddy’s girl, but at times, you still need your momma. You have a love for all animals. You are a dreamer, beautiful, intelligent, and talented & have grown into this bright & beautiful young woman that we are SO incredibly proud of.
Miranda Ella, you are so full of life and love just to burst out singing, especially when your favorite song comes on. You dance around the room & don’t care who’s around to watch, and you have this beautiful voice that the world needs to hear (one of these days, they will). We listen to you about your dreams of becoming a nurse and how much you love to chat about it. You are a mommy’s girl, but you know you can go to daddy for anything. We are SO incredibly proud of the young woman you are growing into. You are beautiful, bright & talented.
Happiest 21st birthday to our two lil’ Beauties! May all your wishes & dreams come true!
Love Always, Mom & Daddy
