Today is my daughter's 15th birthday!! She asked me to make her a collage for her present. I was going to look for a famous quote - I love quotes, but then I thought no I want it to be just for her. So many of my wishes did come true the day she was born. I think most Mother's can understand my sentiments. I had wished for a baby for so long, I had wished to be a Mom. After 6 years of infertility I really did not care if the baby was a boy or girl, but when I found out she was a girl I thought of all of the pink I could surround myself and her with. We both love pink (and lime green) by the way.
Fifteen years ago today, we really did not even know of her yet. We knew that "our birth Mother" was due but we did not find out that she was born until the 8th at 8:00 in the morning. The attorney called and said "It's a Girl!". We picked her up on the 9th and I can not believe that 15 years have gone by. She has become a beautiful young woman. She paints, creates collages and makes jewelry. She is wonderful with kids. She loves to play tennis and surf. She has the most unbelieveable singing voice - she can hit the high notes and her voice gets sweeter as she does it. I wish her only the best in life - because she has certainly given me so much happiness. So I would love to go on, but her friends are coming over and I am dropping them off at the mall. (I guess we have to wait another year or so for her to drive herself). Tonight a dinner at the restaurant of her choice and home for chocate chip cookie cake.

It's all good...
