One year ago today,
I saw you for the first time...
You had ten tiny fingers...
Ten Tiny toes...
and big beautiful eyes.
I couldn't take my eyes off of you.
You hardly cried...
Or even slept.
and when you would look at me,
It was as if you knew what was going on.
You seemed so completely content and happy.
I didn't know it was possible to love someone so much.
I didn't know the true meaning of love, until I met you.
I have never suffered as much pain and heartache as I did the day I had to put your needs ahead of mine...
...The day I placed you into the arms of your loving, incredible, parents.
But I knew it was the right thing Avery.
I knew that you would have the EXACT life I wanted you to have.
The kind of life I couldn't give you...including an Eternal Family.
ONE YEAR LATER,
you are still the most beautiful little girl I have ever met.
you are happy as can be...
No one will EVER have the kind of relationship with you that I have.
We are lucky.
I still think about you everyday.
I miss you every day.
I love you more than words can express.
Happy Birthday Avery Leigh.
It is so hard to believe...
With SO much Love,
