19 years ago today a baby girl was born into our family and our lives have never been the same. Abbie, you’ve brought into our lives, joy and laughter, tears, tantrums, messes of all sorts, and a richness that is a gift from God. Your smile and your spirit of joy and gladness lighten the lives of everyone who knows you. You carry Beauty with you, Beauty of Heart and Spirit, and you have grown into a beautiful woman who I am proud to call my daughter. Those lucky enough to call you friend are blessed indeed. Happy birthday Baby Girl!
