Seven short years ago, my baby girl was placed in my arms.  I fell instantly in love.

Seven short years ago, I looked into her eyes.  I became a Mom.

Seven short years ago, my husband kissed her forehead.  We became a family.

Lily, it is hard to believe that I didn’t know you seven years ago but I honestly cannot remember what life was like without you.  You have made me stronger, braver, and more patient (believe it or not!).

You made me a Mom.  You made us a family.

I love you, forever.
