There are times in your life when you feel deep within your heart that something feels right. It is a feeling deep within you that feeds your heart with happiness. It is a feeling that you believe in, no matter how difficult, no matter how demanding something may be, you know that it is right. You know you have to follow your heart.

Happy Birthday Vika

I have waited til today to write this, I know your birthday is in May, so by now you are 6... 

Here are my birthday wishes for you...

You are 6 now, that means you have spent 6 birthdays in an orphanage. Six birthdays in a place where the day comes and go like every other. In my heart, and in my mind, I wish that you were woken with birthday kisses, and the room decorated with pink streamers twisting and turning from wall to wall. I wish for Balloons floating and filling the air, adding to the festivities. I wish for Cupcakes with pink frosting and sprinkles. I wish presents surrounding you, celebrating you, and your place here on earth. Letting you know, reminding you that you are here to share your life with everyone around you. That you DO mean something to the people around you, that you are a very special person, and not another face in the room. I wish that you have your friends around you right now giving you birthday hugs and birthday smiles. I wish that you were here with your family to celebrate your life. You are a very special, courageous little girl. Those are my 6 birthday wishes for you. Next year Vika, we will have pink twisting and twirling streamers, balloons filling the air. Cupcakes with pink frosting and sprinkles. Presents surrounding you, reminding you that day, and everyday how grateful for you being exactly you! You are a wonderful little person!! We love you... Happy Birthday baby girl... 

If I could make one more wish.. it would be that everyone that is reading this gives her a little present of hope. Pray for her that she will be here. Pray for her that the funds needed to bring her home, will shine the the summer sun. We need it now more than ever...
