six years ago, we got this little gift called maggie.   it wouldn't be her story without a mention of how she cried for almost the entire first year of her life.  but she taught us about faith and patience and life and caring.  she has brought us magic.

happy birthday my dearest maggie.  you are so funny and quirky and beautiful.  you have great dance moves, great poses, and an awesome sense of style.  you know yourself and trust your self completely.  you draw for hours a day and never question your art.  you inspire me.  thank you for coming to us and thank you for being you.  enjoy your day, my love.
