Today our princess turns 18 years old. It doesn't seem possible! It feels like just yesterday Mike got off the plane and handed me our precious princess. She was 3 months old. There were a ton of people at the airport waiting for the princess to arrive. She was sleeping when Mike handed her to me and she never woke up…not once. She was cooed over, passed around, kissed and never woke up! Well, she did open one eye for a minute then went back to sleep. She still does that!

That night Mike and I watched her all night long because we were sure she would wake up because her night and days would be mixed up. Not our girl! She woke up bright and early the next morning and looked around like “what is everyone looking at?” It was Fathers Day and a news crew was there to do a story. Mike and I were so tired but not our princess! She was bright, perky and ready to go!

Jordan you have blessed my life in ways I could never have imagined. Your desire for excellence, your passion for the orphan, your love for God and your family make you an Extraordinary Woman! You will do great things with your life and I am so honored that God chose me to be your Oma. 
I am so proud of you and all that you have accomplished in your 18 years. The world can be a scary place but you show no fear.  You are a child of God and it shows in everything you do!  

And who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this? Esther
