One year ago today...

One year ago today
You entered in this world
So beautiful and perfect
Our precious little girl.

One year ago today
We first saw your tiny face
Such a beautiful picture
Of God's amazing grace.

One year ago today
We first held you in our arms
How you captivated each of us
With your endearing charms.

One year ago today
We first heard your little cries
We continue to wipe away
The tears from your eyes.

One year ago today
Kathryn Elizabeth Sink
Daddy's favorite picture
Was your "smile" and your "wink".

One year ago today
We never would have known
How much our lives would change
And how much we have grown.

One year ago today
Our hearts would nearly burst
With all the love we had for you
Our little girl--our first.

One year ago today
We prayed right from the start
That God would place His seal upon
Your sweet and tiny heart.

Daily we have prayed for you
Even through the night
That His love will shine through you
That you would be His light.

We are so blessed to have you, dear,
Our precious little girl.
We love you more than anything
In this whole wide world.

Did you write that poem, Cristen? It is so sweet. Kathryn is such a fun, sweet and beautiful little girl. We can't wait to move to Roanoke one day so Madeline and her can be BFF's together. Give her a big birthday hug and kiss from Madeline!
