Eight years ago, you were born.
Our lives changed in an instant.
We were no longer a family of 3.
But a family of 4.
You commanded everyone’s attention, with your smile and eyes so blue.
Eight years later, that is still very true.
Your life hasn’t been easy.
Yet you smile and persevere.
In your seventh year, you said the words every parent longs to hear.
You told me you loved me.
It was a dream come true.
You have made us so very proud of you.
On this birthday and on all your birthdays to come, know that I love you, so much more than you could ever imagine.
Happy Birthday, Taylor.
