Dear Lexi,

When you first came to
live with us, you were 
a stranger.
All of your ways were
foreign to me.

We spent every day
Bonding and learning,
growing in love.

Something happened today
that was simply amazing.
All of a sudden, 
out of nowhere, I realized...
I would die for you.

The same realization I had
when I looked into the eyes of
Tiffani, Justin and Lila
for the very first time.

And that, my sweet girl, 
is a miracle.

The miracle of adoption.
The miracle of unconditional love.
The miracle of You.
