We celebrated as a family.
We ate too much.
We lit candles.
Our teen made a wish,
and ate a big hunk of that cake by herself!
(I only post this picture because she falsely accuses me of taking lots of pictures while she is eating.)
Happy Birthday teen. Maybe one day I will be able to add a name to this post!
Our teen hasn't had many opportunities for birthdays. She spend many of them in tears. The things that many kids take for granted she never had. But she has many more birthdays and now a family to celebrate them with.
Never in a million years did we think that we would consider adopting a teen. Sometimes life is funny that way. You know the saying, never say never.
Love you teen, Happy Birthday!
