Happy 24th Birthday, Elizabeth!!!

Okay, so this is the first important day that we have missed being with family and friends since coming to Ecuador.  Today is our first born child, Elizabeth's 24th birthday.  I don't know if all mothers do it, but I always relive the day that my kids were born on THEIR birthdays.  The birth of a child truly changes your lives forever.  Elizabeth has been a blessing to us since the day she was born.

Elizabeth, I am sorry that we are not there in person for you today.  Even though you lived in a different city last year when we were in the States, we were still able to see you within a couple of hours.  Now, that is impossible.  Thank goodness for modern technology.  Hopefully, we will be able to Skype with you tonight.

We hope you have a wonderful birthday today.  We love you very much and miss you very much.  Love, Mom and Dad

  1. Gosh, can sure relate with missing our kids, huh? You have a beautiful daughter, and I'm sure she feels your love from the distance.
    Also - PS - I am jealous of all the traveling and explorations you've been doing - hope to get up your way one of these days to see some of these cool sights too!!!
