Turning 7

How do you spend a day with a little girl who is turning 7? You wake up and go to Krispy Kreme for breakfast, then off to Lowe's so she can pick out some flowers. Of course we go to the mall and then come home to find a brand new bicycle! We ended the day with dinner at Steak & Shake and  night time swim. And her birthday party isn't until Saturday!
She had only been home for five months when she turned 3. It was the first time she had ever celebrated her birthday. Around here birthdays are a big deal so we've made up for lost time. The first time we celebrated her birthday she had no clue what to do. She kept looking at me each time I handed her a gift to make sure it was OK to open it.
Kennedy has come a long way in the past four years. She has no problem receiving gifts at all!
It is easy to forget in all the celebration of this precious life that somewhere in Vietnam Kennedy's birth mother made the heartbreaking decision to make an adoption plan for her. I pray that this day God gives her peace and she will know that the Kennedy is loved infinity! (Kennedy loves saying this!) That she is happy, smart and healthy.
Happy Birthday sweet girl! You are loved!
