12 years old today, and it seems like yesterday your dad was bringing Emma and Alyson to the hospital to visit you. It was just me and you for those few days, daddy had to hold down the home front with your sisters; it was so super special. I hate to think about not being…

14 years old today!!! You are, and will always be, the best Christmas present I ever received!! I remember being home for Christmas with you, Emma, Daddy, and lots of our family, and thinking: “How could life get better than this?” Then Katie came along and filled our family with even more love. I found…

Happy Birthday Emma! It is hard for me to even say you are fifteen, much less write it down, without getting tears in my eyes. I am so excited for you to be getting older, and I love having your sister, Kasey, to share this awesome day with, but how badly I wish we could…

Dear Katie, Happy Birthday! I cannot believe you are 11 today. What is even harder to believe is that you have spent more birthdays in heaven than here with me. My body feels like it has been through an old-fashioned wringer washing machine. I have been crying so much my eyes feel like bowling balls;…

Dear Alyson, Happy 13th birthday! I am so happy for you on your special day. How beautiful, sweet, kind, and loving I know you are. God must be very proud of himself when he sees that smile light up even a place as bright as heaven. I cannot believe that I have not been able to celebrate…

Happy Birthday Emma, Fourteen is amazing to me. You are already going into the second year of your teens. I can only imagine how beautiful you are: tall, long hair, and a huge smile to match those big, beautiful blue eyes.  I would love to have a picture of you at 14 years old. Last…

Happy birthday Katie! I can not believe you are 10 today, you are getting so big.  I am sure you are as beautiful as I imagine, your smile and freckles still lighting up everyone’s heart. I am having a really difficult time with your birthday.  I will not be able to attend mass for you or visit the…

Happy birthday Alyson! I cannot believe you’re 12 today, how amazing! I know you are celebrating with all your new friends today, please know that all your family and friends are celebrating with you. Alyson, I know you have been busy welcoming all the new children who come to heaven. I have learned about so many little boys…

I am so excited for you: 13!  That is a super big deal and I hope your sisters, family and your new friends do something fabulous for you.  If I was still lucky enough to have you here, I have imagined how we would celebrate your 13th birthday for sometime.  We would take Gersham into…

Happy birthday Katie! I can not believe you are nine today.  I would give anything to celebrate with you and your sisters.  My heart is broken, but I know you are having a magical day in heaven. I know if you were here with daddy and me, we would be skiing with Aunt Isabelle, Uncle…
