Happy 1st Birthday, Glory!

A year ago, we had no way of knowing whether Glory would live to see her first birthday.  In Kerry's words, "We didn’t know what we would do if she didn’t live.  We didn’t know what would happen if she did." There were many phone calls over the past year, from our family in Little Rock, asking us to join them and hundreds of others in praying for Glory to make it through that particular night, or that particular day, or that particular surgery.  Everything was, and continues to be, so out of our hands.

But whatever the future holds for our little wondergirl, one thing is certain:  today, she celebrates her 1st birthday!  Today is a sweet, sweet day.

Dear Glory,
We regret the thousands of miles that separate us on this day.  This birthday banner says, "Happy Birthday" and was decorated by your goofy cousins.  We love you SOOOO much, sweetheart! 
Hugs and Kisses,
Uncle D, Auntie K, Bright, Zion, Brave, and Jubilee
