and 23 years ago, she became my saving grace.

I often hear people talk about how having a child changed their lives, and I’m no stranger to how a child can change your life, but my daughter saved my life.

Tanna, you’ve made many burdens lighter, many many days brighter and you’ve lifted, encouraged and believed in me when I was at my absolute worst.

Thank you for being the amazing and awesome woman you are.

I love you more than there are words to express and I’ll love you for all eternity.

Happy Happy Birthday my precious child.

Love, Mom

    And we are SUPER proud to be her god-parents and so sad that we couldn’t be there for her wedding and 23rd birthday.
