Happy Birthday Beautiful

Dear Aviana~

Today you are turning 4 years old. I think back to your 3rd birthday, which was spent in the hospital, and I am so happy with all of the progress you have made.

You have come so far.  You are the strongest person I have ever come across. Day after day, you show us you are still the same old you.  You have such fire and passion within, and I am happy to be witness to it on a daily basis!

You, and your story have inspired so many people, far and wide. Especially me. You have made me a better person.  Because of you, I am more patient, loving and compassionate. You have pushed me further, and stretched me farther in every way. You have made me realize, I can accomplish anything, whether it be physically, mentally, or emotionally. You have brought me to levels I never thought possible.  Through you, I have learned that anything is possible!  

You bring the best out in every person who comes into contact with you.  When I look at you, I am filled with pride.  Above all, I feel the purest form of love ever. You are my baby, and no matter your age, you always will be.

I promise to love you for eternity, but most importantly, I promise to go to the ends of the earth to help you to recover.  I promise you that your Daddy and I will do anything and everything to help you, for the rest of your life.

I admire you more than you will ever know. You are the hardest working child in the business. I just know that one day we will look back on all of these relentless work filled days, and be so happy with what we have accomplished.

You are worth every minute, of every day.  You are a true labor of love.  We are both so happy to have you here with us.

I hope you enjoy your day. I will be thanking God for you today, as I do everyday, for blessing us with such a beautiful baby girl.

I love you with every bit of my being!
