Where do I even begin with this post? I have goose bumps all over from the emotion that is tied to this itty bitty girl. Miracles happen every day, but this miracle is something to behold; this precious baby girl is belief, hope, love and faith, in its purest form. Ruby Love is ONE YEAR OLD! That is something to celebrate, to climb to the top of a mountain and shout for the entire world to hear. The road was rocky, overwhelming and treacherous at times for her parents but they made it. At Ruby’s one-year check up the doctors and nurses were astounded by how healthy she was. From this day forward I know nothing will stop this little girl from doing whatever she puts her mind to. If you had little faith before, it certainly grows deeper when you meet her. She already has such a sassy princess way about her, you know she will get what she wants, when she wants, with help from the big Man above.
I know this past year has brought many ups and downs for your parents, but I also know they wouldn’t trade any of it, because the fight you fought to stay alive brought more hope to the world around you then you will ever know. It’s stories like yours that give those who suffer from a multitude of things faith and hope in this some times sad world.
On this extremely special and meaningful 1st birthday, my birthday wish for you is that you continue to give hope and faith to the world around you. You are a very special girl. Someday when you are old enough to read this, I hope it will inspire you to do great things in the world. You’ve inspired so many already and you already have a gift that will hopefully inspire others throughout the long life you have ahead of you.
Here is just a little glimpse of I captured of your first year. I met you 2 months after you were born still just 3 pounds. Then, I was blessed to capture the moment your parents had been waiting for, to take you home! Then a few quick photos around my favorite time of year, Christmas! Now here you are, a strong and beautiful 1 year old!
Happy Birthday Ruby Love! The world was cheering for you to make it to this day, you did and it and it was inspiring to watch.
With Love and Kisses and Hugs,
