In a nutshell, her birth changed my life.
Whatever anyone says or believes about my drivenness, Type A, OCDish behavior today....imagine it being worse. :) It was.

It was Jordan's birth that really began my deep pondering on angels in our lives. I was often amazed by her affect on people. She was such a happy child, bubbly, adorable, and loving...
Jordan came along at a time our family desperately needed a good shot in the arm of pure love, and for a little while, she and she alone was able to heal an abundance of past family wounds. I am equally parts grateful and amazed by that...and her.

I have no idea what Jordan's future holds, but I do know that it will be filled with family, love, great art, compassion, and a love of all things Jesus Christ. She is a beautiful (stunning actually) girl inside and out. She looks beautiful and fragile on the outside, but she has her mother's inner toughness and her father's playfulness. Even at eighteen, she still likes to snuggle...with her family or pets...revealing that even as she has grown up before our very eyes, she still has the heart of a little girl. Our little girl.
Happy Birthday Miss Jordan!
I owe you a huge part of my life and my heart. I am so proud of you. You are the very best of all of us, and a true individual in your own right. The world will be better with you out in it, but always know you are never too far that we cannot find you. ;)
I love you.
