Happy Birthday Emily Margaret!

Good morning all!
Today we're celebrating the most beautiful child,
I've never met.

But here's what I know:
Three years ago today 
a most magical princess came into the world.
It was a cold day, but the sun shone bright.
So bright in fact,
 that this child touched the lives of two mothers.
The first that brought her into the world,
and the second would carry her through it.

Emily Margaret today you'll play with 
your friends in the playroom.
As you glimpse outside know that far away, 
across the sea a family awaits you.
You have a multitude of friends and family 
surrounding you in prayer.
Both your brothers are carrying your angelic face to school with them.
Those brothers sure are proud of their baby sister.
Then tonight, a special dinner is being held in your honor.
You'll be receiving a gift picked out by daddy.
It won't have frills, ruffles or bling
but it is pink. :)
Since it's your special day,
I think you can lay in the floor and 
eat potato chips if you want to! 

So go baby girl.
Enjoy your friends.
Because soon enough those days will be over,
and we will hold you in our arms forever.

God's blessings and love,
The Second Mama ;)

P.S. Thank you to Julie at The McDonald Gangs Journey for these pictures.
There aren't words to express the gratitude I feel.

I am praying for you today. I know this is a day of celebration as well as your heart is yearning to hold EM. I think what you are doing is wonderful after all God's adopts us as his children when we believe and obey him! So adoption is super important for many reason :)
