Our girl, Hailey Marie, turned 6 years on May 11th!! I’m a little late in posting this, but HAPPY BIRTHDAY SWEET GIRL!! We celebrated by taking a group of 10 kids to a nearby swimming pool. Hailey, loves the water, and loves being with her friends! It was a great afternoon, swimming and then eating some pizza and cake together!
Hailey Marie, six years ago we welcomed you into our family and we began the journey of being parents. You are a girl of incredible energy, ambition and love! We are so thankful for you, and for the privilege of being your mom and dad! This past year you have been so courageous and brave—I am so proud of how you have learned Spanish (you speak much better than I do!!), met new friends, excelled in school, and adjusted to a new culture. You have helped bring your sister and brothers along as well. Hailey, you have a sweet heart for people. I love how you LOVE to celebrate people’s birthdays, you LOVE to make cards and give things to people to encourage them, and you genuinely want to care for people. My favorite memory from this year is when you came in and told us that you shared the Gospel with Lydia and prayed with her to ask Jesus into her heart! I am so proud to be your mommy, Hailey Girl! And I love the work that Jesus has started in your heart, and that He promises to one day bring to fulfillment! Happy 6th Birthday!
