This is my baby girl. She is about 18 months old in this picture. Here she is with her Dad. You can see the love in his eyes as he looks at her.
I remember this little girl. She was quiet. So sweet. So loving. So patient. So smart. So happy. So pretty. I want to reach into these pictures and pick her up and hold her tight. I want to whisper in her ear, "It will be OK. You'll be OK. You have to go through a lot, but you will be OK. You are so loved. You will always be so loved. Don't give up. You have to go through a lot, but you will make it through. You'll be OK. I'm with you. Your Dad will always look at you with that love in his eyes. You will be OK. You are our little girl and we will never give up on you. We will love you as much in 25 years as we do this very minute. Don't ever forget that." I love you, Mary.
