Happy Birthday Juliane

 December 20, 2001

It was a snowy night (well, around 4am) in Detroit Michigan when I finally looked at this beautiful girl. She came out vulnerable but ready to take on the world.

Not much has changed.

Every intense moment was worth it when those big brown eyes looked up at me. She was beautiful. Such a cute face, perfect skin, and a head full of dark brown hair.

Ten years later and she is still worth every intense moment we have. There are not enough words to write the love a mother has for her daughter. I just hope I tell her enough. Show her enough.

Happy Birthday Jude. I love you baby girl.
