At the time of this photo, our oldest daughter was eight years old. 
She prayed every night for five years for a little sister. 
 I know that to be true, because I was beside her when she prayed.
 Her mother had been praying the same prayer.
So, when her little sister arrived, there was real happiness in our home.
Today, that little sister is 30 years old!  And, there is still great joy in our
hearts, by having her in our lives!

From her first days, she had two mothers.  Me, and her oldest sister.
Her older sister lovingly stepped into the role of babysitter,
teacher, and friend.  Two years later, we had another daughter.
They both owe much of who they are today, to their wonderful older

Thirty years have gone by so quickly.  Today, we celebrate that little girl that we
all prayed for,  and all that she means to everyone who knows her! 

Now, she has her own daughter to love and cherish.

Happy Birthday Dear Daughter!  Thank you for adding so much to our lives for
thirty years!

Aw... so sweet! This reminded me of my granddaughter who is eight and just had a little sister in the fall. She can hardly wait now to share a room with her! A little mother! So nice to read of yours and happy birthday to your beautiful daughter!
