I thank God for my daughter Anna Christine. She is seven months old today, and because of her, my life will never be the same again. From the time I was a small child I knew I wanted to be a mother someday, but nothing could have prepared me for the abundance of love and joy I feel at just the thought of Anna. Her smiles brighten my day, her neediness forces me to reevaluate my priorities and become less selfish, and her sweet spirit encourages me and gives my life purpose. She is such a blessing to Zachary and me!
