happy birthday to our little girl! wow. it is so true when they tell you that the years will fly by. i can’t believe that 365 days ago, claire entered this world and changed ours forever. she has been through so much. unimaginable things. things that i don’t know if i could even handle. it is amazing to look at my tiny one year old and think she is stronger than i am. to honestly say that this little girl is my hero. that even though she cannot “do” very much in the traditional sense, i have learned so much from her. she is an excellent teacher. claire came into this world a miracle, a fighter and has already proved so many doctors’ expectations of her wrong. i have no doubt that she will continue to amaze us, inspire us and show us a love beyond understanding.
happy first birthday claire bear!
