~OUR NEW BABY GIRL~
Dear Adrie Girl~
Twenty-six years ago today your daddy drove me to the hospital and at 9:34 in the morning you were born. Expecting to have baby boy #2 (which would have been just fine!) we were totally unprepared when we were told the baby I had carried for nine long months was a girl! We didn't have a girl name chosen and only had a handful of baby girl clothes (which were gifted to us just in case!). It honestly took us six days to agree on a name for you...
(Meeting You For The First Time)
I can remember saying the name "Adrienne" over and over and over out loud! Your daddy loved it, but it seemed like such a BIG name and you were such a tiny baby! How glad I am we finally chose it for you though... It was meant for you~
~BABY DEDICATION DAY~
(You Are Now The Age I Was Here!)
I've loved watching you grow up! I loved every single part of your childhood and was so proud when you started school...
~GOING TO KINDERGARTEN~
(Sweet and Petite)
~STARTING FIRST GRADE~
(So Shy and Quiet)
I loved making your clothes for you...
~BEGINNING OF THIRD GRADE~
(Coming Out of Your Shell)
Seems like it was yesterday you waved good-bye to me as you walked into your kindergarten classroom hand in hand with big brother, Brandon.
Then one day you were going to your Senior Prom...
(The Most Precious Girl)
And graduating from High School... And then life around your childhood home was never quite the same.
~CLASS OF 2003~
(You've Made Us Proud!)
Once you graduated and started college you met the love of your life and in just a matter of time you married your beloved...

~WEDDING DAY 2007~
(Beautiful Inside and Out!)
You looked stunning on your wedding day and will always be the most beautiful bride I have ever, ever seen...
And will always remain the most beautiful daughter I could have ever hoped to have.
Thank you for your deep rooted faith in the Most High and for the grace and love you show to those around you. Thank you for honoring us as your parents and for all the joy you have brought into our lives since the day God first placed you in our arms...
I pray today for God's peace to wash over you and that this will be one of your happiest and most blessed birthdays ever.
I'm so glad we are friends~
Love you most...Mom
Blessings to you as you celebrate the lives of those you love...
