Happy 16th Birthday Claire!
I hope it was a memorable day for you. We love you very much.
We had Ammie and Papa here this week and they were so excited to be here to celebrate your special day.
I can't believe that you are 16! It has flown by, and it seems like yesterday that we brought you home and finally had a little girl to love. You have blossomed through the years into the beautiful young lady that I see today. I was thinking about it this morning as I wrapped a few last minute gifts, and a few tears went quietly down my cheek. You are growing up so fast and soon you'll be going off to college....were did all the time go?
Dad and I are so thankful that you are our daughter, you are such a ray of light in this world. Wishing you a happy and very special sweet 16 birthday.
