On October 25, 2008 my wonderful family threw me the best shower I could have ever dreamed of. Thank you so much Aunt Bonnie, Aunt Deb, Alyssa, Billy and Jenine for making my day so special. And thank you to everyone else in the family who cooked and baked and came to support us. Thank you is not enough. I have dreamed of my baby shower for 10 years and it finally became a reality. I cannot even describe the feeling of wanting a child, dreaming of a child, and praying for a child for so long and finally to be so close to your dream. It is as though we have been sailing on an ocean in a ship that was about to sink for 10 years and finally reaching shore. As you can see from the picture Halainah Grace has everything that she could possibly imagine. Now all we need is for her to come home. Everyone was entirely generous to us, and even family and friends that could not attend my shower sent gifts and well wishes. I am in awe of the generosity. Thank you to all of my friends and family that shared this special day with me. Honestly, it meant the world to Tony and I. Your never ending support and pure joy and happiness for us left us speechless. All of this for me and my daughter? What have I done to deserve such an amazing family?
