Today, my youngest child is fourteen. It’s hard to believe that she came into this world as a 6 lbs. 6 oz., 19 inch little baby and now she’s a 5 ft 4 inch young woman. It seems that just yesterday I was bringing her home from the hospital and now she’s finishing up middle school and is about to begin her high school years.

She’s growing up to be a wonderful person with good values and the courage to stand up for what she believes in. I’m proud to be her mom.

Happy birthday, sweet girl!
