Happy 8th Birthday Mia!

Sweet Pea...or should we call you Komodo,

Happy Birthday!  It's hard to believe it has already been 8 years since you let out your first cries!  Where has time gone?  You are an adorable 8 year old, full of life, ready to conquer anything.

We love your imagination.  Your name and person changes daily.  Some days you are a red dragon with blue glasses (Komodo), other days you are a blue dog named Chase.  Some days you are a pirate cat that lives in the ocean named Kwasii.  Some days it is just hard to keep track.

This year you are in second grade and doing so well.  You love to read and learn.  This year we have started Spanish because you can't get enough of it.  When asked how old you are going to be on your birthday, you usually always respond, "ocho".  It makes us smile.

You are growing taller and getting bigger.  This year you gained another 2 inches.  We do just a few therapies with you now, what a change from a few years ago.  You still ride horses at MARE and you love that.

This year our prayer is for your seizures to stop.  We know that God can do this in an instant, if He chooses, but right now, we don't understand why, but He isn't choosing that.  We are going to trust Him for his timing.  But we want that more than anything.  You've had some pretty bad falls because of them and we'd like that to never happen again.  You are a brave girl though and keep fighting daily through them.

We love you so much sweet baby girl.  We are so grateful that God has entrusted us with you.

Love you to the moon and back,
Mama and Daddy and brothers
