Oh Jenn, what a beautiful story about a beautiful girl!! She is so precious and you are all so lucky to have each other!! Happy Birthday to your sweet girl - I hope it is wonderful! See you soon - Kellan


She's beautiful! What a great story. I have a 23-year-old too. Jenn, we need to have coffee or similar, and soon!


Lovely, sentimental tale. What a lovely birthday gift for her.


If I had just met you and your family and knew nothing about who was who and whose, I would just believe that she belonged to you...she really does resemble you and your kids!!
Happy Birthday, Grown-Up Girl...bask in the love that is your family, they are your light and your warmth when you need them!!
(What an awesome post, Jenn!!)


She's lovely!

Happy (late) birthday!


Awww...sweet story for a beautiful young woman. You are lucky to have each other.

Happy Birthday Grown up Girl.

It is an amazing thing that you did - take your niece into your family and bring her up as one of your own.

Happy birthday to a beautiful spirit! Families don't ever come neatly packaged - even the ones that seem zipped up nuclear and tight. Great to know yours!

Happy Birthday GuG!! And what a sweet tribute to her.


Happy Birthday, GuG! She looks like a girl who knows she's much loved. (And families come in all shapes and sizes...)


A beautiful tribute to a beautiful girl.


Beautiful story, and a happy belated birthday.

Well done Jen - that is a wonderful story.

Happy Birthday to your beautiful girl!


How beautiful she is and you are the MOM! I could wave at her I live that close!


What a beautiful daughter! She is lovely.


Families that come together in less than conventional ways tend to appreciate each other more, I think!




That was a beautiful story you wrote for her and about her. She surely is a treasure just as YOU, her very special mommy are too.

Happy birthday GuG.

Just Because

Happy Birthday to you lovely daughter,I can relate to spending birthdays apart.I spent my 20 th birthday in Sacramento ca.at McClelland AFB getting ready to go on a tempory duty assignment.
I did that a lot.I spent a lot of birthdays apart from my parents.especially after I got married when I turned a FOOLISH 21 years old.
any way I got off on a tangent,sorry about that.I truely hope that you and your have a great day every day.
