Today is dedicated to my baby girl

Seventeen years ago my baby girl made her appearance. It was a Tuesday morning, the due date given at the beginning of the pregnancy and the C-Section was scheduled for 10:00am. The weather was fine when we arrived at the hospital but by 9:30am as family was arriving there appeared to be a major ice storm starting. Of course Kierstyn came into the world with a mind of her own refusing to make delivery easy and wasn’t born until 11:35am. I guess it was very interesting for family and friends to get home. IU played Michigan that night and we put her in her IU sleeper and watched the game from the hospital room. The ice storm was the worse Bloomington, Indiana had seen for years shutting almost everything down the remainder of the week. We finally convinced the doctor to send us home on Thursday. Seventeen years later and you are still making us so proud and just as you defied the odds over the last seventeen years with various health problems you are still proving to the world that with hard work, determination and dedication anything is possible. I am so proud of you, you not only blessed our lives seventeen years ago but you have continued to bless our lives each and every day. Love you bunches baby girl.

Thank you for allowing me to take the time to make this dedication to her today.
