Two years ago yesterday I went for a walk in the woods and made a wish on my birthday. Though I didn't know it then, that night, that very night, my wish (at last, at last, for I'd made the same wish for many, many, many, many birthdays) began to come true. And now she is here. My birthday miracle. The miracle of my life. My wishes are all for her now. Darling, darling, darling wonderful girl. Thank you.

Children really are the best wish come true, especially when the road to fulfilling the dream is bumpy.

You made me have tears:-)

Loved seeing the photos of the Falls. My dad proposed to my mom on that bridge!

Happy Birthday, the best wish possible came true for you! :)

Happy Birthday Alicia! Glad all your dreams have come true :)

Happy Birthday! What lovely photos of what looked like a divine birthday celebration. All the best wishes.

Happy birthday Alicia. What a beautiful post. You have been blessed indeed!

Happy Birthday! Beautiful post indeed.

I remember celebrating my birthday after we had our little boy and I couldn't think of a single wish because I too spent so many years wishing for the same thing. It actually felt so wonderful not knowing what to wish for when all wishes have come true.

Happy birthday!
