Happy Birthday Sweet Girl!!

Five years ago today, a family in Ukraine awaited the birth of their child. 
When she arrived, things were much different than they expected. 
They were given no hopes for that child's future. 
I can only imagine what a heart wrenching time that must have been for them.
Do they wonder what became of their daughter? 
When January 5 comes, do those parents pause and think of the significance of the day?

I would love to be able to thank them for the gift that they gave our family on that day five years ago.
A priceless gift beyond compare... our precious Miss Maia!

We love you so much sweet girl!
No doubt about it - God has a very special plan for your life.

Happy 5th birthday!!

Since blowing out the candles wasn't an option, we did the next best thing.

Enjoying cake and ice cream.


  1. Happy Birthday sweet girl! Looks like you had a good one!

    (Is it my imagination, or is her hair growing in darker than it was before? Still beautiful of course. just curious.)
