Today you officially become one of the big kids. Happy 12th birthday, sweet girl. We are so very proud of you and cannot wait to see what God has planned for you. You have quietly carved out your own way in our family, never getting caught beneath the shadows cast by the achievements of your older siblings. Your talents and successes are completely unique and amazing. Continue to model your life on those of your favorite Saints, as one can never go wrong imitating the lives of Saint Therese and Saint Joseph Cupertino. May God bless and protect you, our glorious, gorgeous, gifted, girl.
