To my sweet Audrey-girl,
From the moment we knew you were joining our family, we adored you. When we met you for the first time we were overwhelmed with your gentle beauty, your petite features, your long fingers. Your demeanor is sweet and delicate, your smile melts us, your movements are graceful and your laugh is contagious.
Your great-Auntie Lorrie once told me that having a daughter is ‘magical’ and now I know she was absolutely right. I love your brothers, but the connection I feel to you, my sweet girl, is different. You have awoken a greater creativity in me, a softness and protectiveness that is new to me.
I have so many hopes and dreams for you, but my deepest prayer of all is that you will know how perfectly and wonderfully you have been made. May you always know that you are adored by your mommy and daddy, by your big brothers, your grandmas & grandpas, aunties & uncles and all of your cousins and friends. But most of all, may you know that Your Heavenly Father was overjoyed when he created you and He is so pleased with his princess, Audrey Ryan.
You have changed our lives, baby girl. You have completed our family, added precious femininity to our household of boys and have forever blessed your mommy.
I love you sweet girl.
