It's hard to believe it's been a year. Such a cliche, but so very true.
We hope and pray that Marguerite's birthmother is doing well. She's been in our hearts in such a special way, especially as we celebrated Marguerite's first birthday and prepared for Christmas. We send photo updates through the agency, but we do not hear from Marguerite's birthmother. We trust that, if she is choosing to view the photos, she is just as proud as we are at what a lovely, precious girl Marguerite is.
Marguerite, you are our pride and joy! Happy first birthday, Sweetie!
