2 years later

Dear Elisa,

There are no words adequate enough to describe how much your father and I love you. These last two years have been full of such joy and love. They started out rather scary, but you quickly showed us that we had nothing to fear. You were stronger than your circumstances.

As you've grown in both skills and personality, you've shown us a little girl full of tenacity, stubbornness and a love for drama and attention. In the lime light is where you love to be. You search the room for the best place to perform in order to gain the most attention.

Your smile and your laugh light up a room. In fact just your presence and aura does. You catch on so quickly to new concepts that you constantly amaze us. Preemie what? You weren't early. You were just little.

As we enter the next chapter of your life and welcome into your world another brother or sister, just remember that we will always love you. In many ways our love for you will be so different because we fought for you so hard. You may never know or understand just how much we fought for you, to give you the best we could after life threw us a curve ball we couldn't stop and didn't want.

We hope that on this day of your 2nd birthday, you will somehow know all that we feel for you, even if you don't understand it yet.
