~HAPPY BIRTHDAY ADRIENNE - With Love From Your Momma~

October 25th, 1984

To My AdrieGirl...

As hard as it is for me to believe, this very day you will turn 25 years old (at exactly 9:34 AM)! Where have the years gone? Seems like just yesterday your Daddy and I celebrated your exciting birth. Knowing you would be our last child we were thrilled when the doctors told us we got our BABY GIRL! My little family was complete. Daddy, Me, Brandon and you. Beautiful, sweet, adorable YOU!

How is it possible you are now the age I was when you were born? Inside my heart I'm still 25! Do you know that? Somehow I remember feeling 'older' than you appear to be. Maybe that's because I already had your big brother and I'd been married for six years. You still seem so very young to me and I still want to protect you... Letting you go has been so hard~but, I've done it (almost!)....

(Thank You, God)

The moment above is forever etched on my heart and in my mind. Tiny little features and such a huge answer to prayer! I just loved it that you looked just like me...

(He'll Always Be There For You)

Except your nose! To this day it still looks just like your daddy's...

(I LOVE Your Toothless Grin!)

You've been so loved by your family over the years! Especially by your brother (he'd do anything for you!), and your Grampa (I know you miss him).

(Truly Loved By All)

As you grew older you became even more lovely...

(Long After You'd Grown Up!)

I especially love how you still make time for me even though you are all grown up! From the very beginning you made me feel special and needed. See our hands?

I'm so grateful we've never experienced the struggles so many mothers and daughters have had! Your grace and love is so inspiring...

(The Apple of Your Daddy's Eye)

Two years ago we celebrated your beautiful wedding and watched as you pledged your life and heart to Micah. What a JOY it's been to see you both begin such a wonderful journey together. Don't forget~our prayers are always with you and we are trusting you will hold onto the years when the difficult days come...

I love you so very much! Happy Birthday, my beautiful, beautiful daughter. You continue to bless me over and over and over...

Love, Momma

Happy Birthday to your beautiful daughter! What a blessing she has been to you. God is so good to us.

Your photos are so sweet Rebecca, I love the one of the two of you on the sofa. That reminds me of how sweet my youngest son Russ is. He's 28 and will still hold Mom's hand in public, such an adorable heartwarming thing for a son to do.

Big hugs, Sherry

Love the hand holding - I've always been touched by photos of hand holding, especially strong male hands holding childrens hands, but this reminds me how much I love mother daughter hands - any age.

Beautiful post & Happy Birthday to your daughter!

Hi! what a very touching post. Your daughter is just lovely!! I love how you took the post thru the years, starting with her birth, growing up, right up to the present. Fantastic. My oldest just turned 25 also, and it is still amazing to me that I could have a child that old, cuz some how I don't feel much older then that in my heart. I watch my body age, but I am still as I was back then when he was born! I was glad to read that you feel the same way. I hope you all enjoyed the birthday celebration. warmly, Debby
