Happy Birthday to someone special

Many years ago, after my son Todd was born, we were trying to decide if that was all of the children we were going to have come to our home. My husband felt like three was definitely enough. I wondered and wondered. I was awake many nights praying to know if there were any more for us. I had the very strongest feeling that without a doubt in my mind there was a little girl still to come. In fact I had this feeling even before Todd came and was born to our family, we just figured he was going to be that little girl, but no Todd knew what was going on and decided if he didn't jump in line and come down first we would decide to not have any more children.
I didn't know what to do because I knew that we still had a little girl to come to our family.

Needless to say, Angela was so important to our family that I became pregnat and Angela was born 18 months after Todd. It was definitely not planned that way or was it...(I think the Lord has his own plan) Angela was loved so much and we were so happy to have her in our family. I know that she was supposed to be here. When she was born, because I have all of my children Cesarean I was given the opportunity to have her born on Valentine's day or the day after. We decided that she needed her own special day, instead of having to share it with Valentine's day. She will always be known as my little valentine baby, my ANGEL.

She is so great. She is sweet, caring, loving, bubbly and fun. She is always worried if someone is unhappy or sad. She tries to do everything that she is supposed to do and she always sticks up for what is right around her friends. We are so LUCKY to have her in our home. We can't believe how beautiful she has grown up to be, and often wish she was still our little Ang, but I guess she will AlWAYS be our little ANG.

Happy Birthday Day Ang!!! We love you very much. You are great!
