In memory, my girl...

These are her actual footprints.  She weighed 1 pound 7 ounces and was 12 inches long.

Happy birthday my extraordinary, valiant daughter. 
12 years ago today, you let us know that even though mommy was upside-down in the hospital trying to keep you there, you decided you were coming anyway! 
I ache for you first thing every morning and innumerable times during each day without you.  It was both an eternity ago and just a moment ago simultaneously.
Today, indulgently, I share your name and story with anyone I can. 
I will love you forever, Mommy.
