Happy 11th Birthday Sarah! Although this is your first birthday away from home, I’m sure there will be many more. Ever since you stood up in a Hilton Head hotel room and started walking at 10 months, you’ve been walking away from home. You are the most independent, strong-willed creature I’ve ever seen. You are smart, creative and beautiful. I know you are eager to explore the world and have adventures. You are a helpful and compassionate member of our family and I love you with all my heart.
