My youngest daughter Mads. She will always be my baby although she has grown into a lovely young lady.
I had my two oldest kids so close together at a young age I felt like their infancy was a blur. With Mads, I was older, a bit wiser, and I cherished her every stage.
She was never far from my side. She had a crib and toys at work. She was my helper as I coached her oldest siblings volleyball team. Later she became an amazing volleyball player. She is adventurous and full of heart. Her smile can melt me.
Things have changed between us since the Divorce, but my memories and all the things we have done together are bright. If I can remove the wedge that came between us I would in a split second. I still pray and think of her daily and hope someday I will be able to soften the hurt I have caused in her heart.
So proud of how she has grown into an intelligent, beautiful, kind young lady.
Thankful and blessed by my baby girl.
