I wonder if they will take time to think of her on Thursday, her birthday. Will they be sad? Will they wonder where she is and how she is doing? Will they wish they could kiss her sweet cheeks and receive one of her silly smiles? Would they be proud of her progress since she has come home? Do they have any idea what a wonder they are missing out on?
If I could talk to them I would tell them thank you for such a wonderful child. She is our sunshine. She is a joy. She is funny and charming and lovable and beautiful. She has her brother and daddy wrapped around her little finger (and me too). I would promise that we will protect her and guide her as she travels through life. We will make sure that she knows where she comes from and do our best to make her proud of her heritage. I would tell them that she is our daughter and sister and that we will love her unconditionally for the rest of our lives.
