Miss Katelyn – The 11-Year-Old

I have been mulling words over in my head for a week now – ever since Katelyn’s birthday.  I have been trying to figure out how to convey my feelings for this girl so whoever reads this would understand just how much she means to me.  I decided to just start typing and hopefully the words would come.

Katelyn was four when she came into my life.  She was a spunky, sweet, loving, spirited little girl with crazy blonde curls, bright blue eyes, and a heart of gold.  She filled a void in my life that I didn’t know existed until she came along.   Over the past seven years, I have watched this sweet, bubbly little girl turn into a beautiful, smart young lady.  She is loving, funny, compassionate, and absolutely wonderful!  Katelyn is the daughter I never knew I wanted, and I can’t imagine my life without her.

We celebrated Katelyn’s birthday last week.  It’s so hard to believe she is 11 already!


I love the look on her face in this picture.  We got her the Zach Brown Band CD, and I didn’t realize just how much she really wanted it.  When she opened it, she acted like we gave her the world.  It was so awesome to see how thrilled she was; it made my evening!

So, Miss Katelyn, thank you so very much for filling my life so much my cup overflows.  I love you, and I am looking forward to watching you grow and develop into the fantastic woman you will become.
