My Princess is 8!

8 years ago I had no idea what I was getting into. I was laying in my hospital bed staring at this screaming little red blob I would come to know as my daughter. I had all the hopes in the world for her. I knew with her father and I's knowlege she would become someone strong. I remember when I was told I would have her. I was terrified. I was supposed to have her on Janurary 22. She had her own plans and to this day is still this way.

I have watched her grow. She has fallen and bruised her ego and body but with my help she has gotten back up and survived. She gave me the best job ever. This job called mom. Today is not only your birthday but my anniversary. It is my 8 year mark in this journey called Parenthood. It has not been the best but I would not trade it.

Roana you never cease to amaze me. You are wonderful and the best daughter. You are so innocent but so intelligent. I wish for one moment I could look through your eyes and see the world as you do. I know you are going to be an amazing woman. No matter what you become or who you become you will always be my beautiful daughter. I cannot believe in 10 years you will be a legal adult. It seems as though just yesterday I was staring into your beautiful brown eyes for the very first time. I love you baby. I will always be your mom.
