We'll be singing/signing Addie's favorite song today - the only song that is always followed by cake with candles. 6 candles for our sweet today.
Addison, your 6 years have held more than many see in a lifetime. You've had your struggles, your pain, your setbacks. And each time, you amaze us with your verve, your determination, your resiliance and sense of purpose. And each time, your smile grows more rooted, your power more fierce, your beauty more intense. Your example has set my perspective on a different course countless times.
It's true - the force within you is so much stronger than any force that is against you. I watch you as you fly.
