What a day that was……that beautiful day where I held my little girl for the first time. To realize that God had given me something I had prayed for since I was a little girl – it was more than I could comprehend. After suffering through many miscarriages – we finally delivered this beautiful baby girl. Malaya was actually a triplet…. but we lost two just before I was 12 weeks pregnant.
Malaya has the most beautiful heart. She has a heart for those who are hurting. She has a heart for those who are suffering. She has a heart for the poor. She has a heart for the sad animals – you know those commercials that come on TV! She has a heart for the team members that come to Haiti. She has a heart for the children in the orphanage. She has a heart for the elderly. Malaya’s best friend is the wedding lady’s mother – Ruth! She prays for Ruth and thanks God for her every day!
Malaya used to be this shy little girl. I have watched her bloom into this gorgeous – caring – loving – smart – funny – quick-witted – responsible – selfless – young lady.
Malaya you constantly challenge me – teach me – encourage me – love me – and make me so proud!
Happy Birthday Baby Girl!
