22


Dear Whitney, 

You are 22 today!!  Holy crap – you’re getting old.  Hahaha.  This is the first b/day, in ten YEARS we get to spend together.  AHH!!  I am so happy.  Your life has been harder than anyone I have met.  You have had some of the lowest lows a person can have, but you don’t let it dull your beautiful smile.  I wish I could take away your past pain, and bad memories. 

Those experiences could have made you a resentful, mean person.  But you are sweet and funny and loving and kind.  I am so thankful and blessed to have you in my life.  We have said it a million times, YOU are OURS.



I hope you have an amazing year, beautiful! 

Love, Mom, Dad, Cadence, Bryleigh, Lenyx & Chris
