She is four, this small girl who so nearly wasn't, yet by some amazing grace was given back to us. This girl who has bought so much love and laughter into our lives has now been in our family for forty eight months.
Grabbing a rare glimpse of sunshine on her special day whilst watching her play with the flowers she insisted she needed for her birthday table, I managed to capture some of the emotions she was feeling.
These are my four favourite faces of her day:
and one to shatter any illusions of perfection about our lives.
Always knowing how blessed we really are, even during diva moments!
What is making you feel thankful today?
