Today GB is nine. Nine years ago, I had the privilege of catching her as she was born. Although I am sad her birth parents were unable to get their acts together and take care of her, I have been blessed with her constant presence in my life.
She makes ordinary moments worth celebrating and highlights unforgettable. She is the baby I never expected and the child the second half of my life is built around. She has issues and challenges, but every morning she gets up ready and eager to start again. GB is a gift from God.
