Teresa's Birthday

Today is this beautiful young ladies 26th birthday.  She was born to a single mother of only 16 years.  Luckily this mother lived with a great mom of her own & a very helpful little sister.

She was born premature, three months.  She was only 2.2 pounds & the first week she was born (as most babies do) lost some weight & so at her lowest she was 1.14 pounds.

But she was strong, strong inside and outside.  She only had to use a breathing tube for five short days.  She was in the hospital however, for 2 1/2 long months.  But that gave her plenty of time to grow & get stronger.  When she left the hospital she was almost 5 pounds.

She has always been a unique soul.  Born into a century that probably wasn't hers.  She has been a bit old fashioned, clairvoyant and brilliant.  She used to pretend she was a horse, among other animals & she wished we could have her "fixed" so she never had to have kids-because her younger brother Gavin was such a pain to her.

There are so many things I could say about this girl, I could go on and on....but mostly I want to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR DAUGHTER-I HOPE YOU HAVE A WONDERFUL DAY!!!!
