Madeline Dawn

11 years ago today our Madeline Dawn was born.  I'll never forget when they handed her to me, all scrubbed up and polished, a head of dark hair with a pink ribbon in it.  She was all wrapped up like a present from God to me, bow and all.  From that second on, I was struck with her beauty, as were every person that laid eyes on her sweet little chubby face. Almost daily I would be taking Maddie for a walk, or in a grocery store when complete strangers would stop me just to get a look at her beautiful face. 

I love these photos our friend Brittani took of Maddie this spring.  She captured Maddie's spirit so well.  She is energetic and kind.  She's compassionate and dignified. I like to refer to Maddie as an "old soul". She is wise beyond her years, comprehending truth that most adults will never understand.  While being wise, she has a very silly sense of humor.  She keeps us on her toes with her funny insights and jokes.

Maddie has a beautiful spirit, and is such a joy to have around.  I thank God every day for letting me be her Mamma.  Happy Birthday Maddie. I am so proud of you, and I love you!
