Happy Birthday Destiny!
It's been six months now since you came into our lives and changed it forever. It has certainly been quite an experience!
You took right to us with no problems even after all you've been through in your short life. Before you came to live with us, you had already been in four different foster homes and you were only 2 1/2!
You sure have changed in the last half year...your speech is better, though you are still hard to understand a lot of times, which can be very frustrating to both you and your Daddy and me when you can't get across to us what you are wanting to say. Even more frustrating is when I don't hear what you are saying and say "What?"...you'll repeat whatever it is even quieter than you said it the first time! Oh, I'm having SUCH a hard time trying to explain to you what "louder" means! You've become more independent, saying "I do it!" when it comes to a lot of things, especially getting dressed. I try to let you "do it" as much as I can, but you still need help at times.
So, today you are 3, or "free" as you say...LOL...I guess that's how most little kids say " 3" at first. Lately you have become quite the diva! You've been demanding, wanting what you want when you want it...you've been possessive, everything to you is "mine!"...and most aggravating, you've been throwing temper tantrums when you don't like something, crying and hollering at the top of your lungs! Oh my gosh, I hope you outgrow this particular phase soon!
Your Daddy and I want you to know that even with all the changes that have happened in our lives since you (and Meghan!) came along, all the drama, frustrations, and tears, we both love you so very much and can't imagine life without you anymore! We can't wait to see what happens next... you do bring lots of happiness to our lives, no matter what else happens!
Happy Birthday Destiny! I hope the day is joyful and full of surprises for you!
Love you forever,
