A Birthday Message From Daddy...



Happy Birthday Kendall! I can't believe my monkey is one year old today. I couldn't be more proud of you and I could never express my love for you in words so I won't even try. You have been through a lot this year and still face the unknown with a smile. Oh that little smile! It has the ability to instantly cheer me up and is more contagious than the swine flu. That little smile reminds me that it doesn't matter what hand we are dealt in life, it only matters how you play it. I am proud of the little girl you are turning into. You have taught me a lot about what is really important in my life and I am a better person because of you. For me, life is about the journey with those you love and I want you to know that whatever the future holds, your family will be there for you always.

Love,

Daddy

P.S. Jocie, things are hard sometimes and some days my best isn't good enough, but don't ever doubt how much you mean to me or how much I love you.

Happy Birthday Kendall Girl,
I have been blessed to be a service provider to such a wonderful and special family. I am priveledged to work in this field where I am able to meet such amazing parents as the two of you, Justin and Jocalyn. Your support system is amazing and with with every hill you climb there is a down hill on the other side. Kendall is a very lucky child to have family that loves her just the way she is. I look forward to Monday mornings because I know I start my week with your Ray of Sunshine. Her smile is beautiful and your family is just as beautiful.
Love Mrs. Shay
