This can't be real! Seriously, it cannot! My Rachel turns....I can't even say it....21 today! 21! The waterworks are starting as my mind is flooded with memories of the great anticipation of seeing her for the first time. It seems like I held in her my arms for the very first time just yesterday. That precious tiny, fresh-from-Heaven baby girl. Oh what joy floods my mind as I thank the Faithful One for all that He has done and continues to do on her behalf. She is beautiful inside and out and lives each day trying her best to glorify Him. We couldn't be more blessed to be her parents (and it goes without saying, but we feel the exact same way about our Hannah).

This year we celebrate her 21st birthday and her 5th anniversary since her surgery. We continue to marvel at all that He has done for our Rachel and we look forward with great joy to all of the incredible things He has in store for her precious life. God is so good!!!

Happy birthday, baby girl. We love you so very much!!!!
