You have been a special girl from the moment you were born. Even though you came early, and the first several months were hard, you were a fighter.
Now you're a healthy, happy 5 year old who continues to amaze me every day. I am proud of you for all the good decisions you make, for being brave enough to move to a foreign country, and even go to school surrounded by foreign language.
I love your infectious laugh and your tender heart.
No one in the world is quite like you.
Happy Birthday, girl. I love you.
