To April On Her 28th Birthday

Dear April,
I remember the day when you were born I was s o scared, I was just a child myself. I was so unsure of how I would cope with the changes that were happening in my life, but when they brought you to me and I looked into those beautiful eyes of yours I knew that with God's help I would be alright.  He had sent me this wonderful little life to love and care for.  I knew that moment that you had filled a place in my heart that on one else could ever fill.  

I was going to be someone's mother for the rest of my life.  I couldn't believe that you were really mine.  I was so proud that day that I was your mother and you were my beautiful daughter and I am even prouder today for the wonderful person you have become, You're a mother now and someone's wife.  But in my eyes and in my heart you will always be that beautiful baby girl they laid in my arms 28 years ago, and I just want you to know that I love you honey, more than I can say and it's a love that will last forever and a day.

Happy Birthday Sweetheart,

Written for my oldest daughter April Christine Roth. 
My beautiful daughter and also my friend.
