I am so proud of the young lady you are becoming. Twelve years old, where does the time go? As a baby you were so content. You went along for the ride as we attempted to take care of your big brother's health needs. Even our early home videos show a quick shot of the smiley baby and then move on to "look what Jonathan can do". You waited patiently, you knew your time in the spotlight would come! On your first birthday, we closed on our first Florida house and started our life in this wonderful community. By your second birthday you had tons of friends, many of whom are still your closest friends today. When you were four and a half you became a big sister. You were eager to practice your mothering skills, one of your many talents! You excell at everything you do! You are so comfortable on stage and had your first lead roles when you were ten. In AWANA you will be the first person in eight years to finish all four books of extra credit "silver and gold". You are so strong and sure of your faith, and eager to share it with anyone who will listen. You give everything you do 100% (except maybe cleaning your room:))! You are everyone's best friend, including mine! I love you!
