To my darling daughter,
Ten years ago we welcomed you into the world, and our world became a better place for it. You were born with a head full of red hair and a bright personality to match, always seeming to know what you wanted from the world and having a way of making sure it found you.
As my first born, I stumbled along not really knowing if I was doing this parenting thing quite right, but you were loved and thriving so I knew I must be doing something right and I kept on heading in that direction.
As cliché as it sounds, the past 10 years have gone by amazingly quickly. I guess I’m feeling it even more this year as you enter double digits. I look at your newborn sister and realise just how much you have grown and the beautiful young lady you have become.
