Dear Adelle, You have rocked my world. When you came into my life 3 yrs, 9 months, and two weeks ago – you were a complete surprise. Then you continued to rock my world by showing up two weeks late to your own birthday party after a very difficult day (and tried to crash our anniversary to boot!). I won’t forget it that is for sure! From day one you have taught me to be reliant on God rather than myself, and I thank you for that.
I love you and all that you are. You are love and crazy rolled into one. I love your princess obsession, but hope that I can teach you that true beauty is what God thinks of you and not how sparkly your dress is.
I love your obsession with soft things! We know how well received something is by the way you simultaneously reach out one hand while putting your thumb in your mouth. You did it when you were 6 months old with your favorite puppy and you did it a few months ago when you met your baby sister (and her soft head) for the first time.
You can be stubborn, but even as we work through toddler issues, I know that God is shaping you to be an incredible woman who will lead rather than follow, love when it’s not the popular thing to do, and choose Him even in the difficult times.
