Birthday Wishes for Sarah

                         Happy Birthday, sweet girl.

                        When you woke up today looking out
                        of your crib,
                         you are no longer 2, but 3.
                        Three years ago, you were given breath, life.
                        You were born in a country,
                        across the ocean and miles away from us.
                        You were placed on this earth
                        to make the world more beautiful.
                        You are a promise.

                        Two months ago, you were born in our hearts.
                        Our love for you is everlasting.
                        We have only seen a picture of you,
                        But you are beautiful, you are precious,
                        and most of all,
                        You are loved.

                        One day we will meet you face to face.
                        Oh, Sarah, what a day to behold.
                        From the autumn time,
                        to the snow on the ground,
                        our celebration day is getting closer.

                       Your big sister is talking constantly of
                        making a difference in your life.

                        Your big brother is drawing pictures for you
                        and making cards to celebrate your

                        Your mother and father are leaving
                        no stone unturned on their journey
                        to bring you home. 

                        The days are getting shorter on our
                        part of the world
                        For our family, it's a time to anticipate
                        your arrival.

                        Soon, baby girl, you'll be in your forever home
                        wrapped in the loving arms of a family
                        who loves you.

                        Soon, oh so very, Soon.

                        Happy Birthday, sweet girl.
                        You are loved, Sarah.
