I had come across a picture the other week and my friend had thought it looked a lot like Hadley. And my neighbor saw it and asked why I had dressed Hadley up as a pioneer girl. I was a bit younger here...but I do see a lot of similarities.
My parents had everyone over this past weekend for dinner. As I showed my Dad the picture...he said, "Come here...I have something for you." We walked to his bedroom and he pulled out his wallet. And one by one he started putting pictures of me growing up out onto his bed. I was in tears. It was so sweet and special to me that my dad saved and carried around these pictures of me growing up, through all these years. I started crying. And we shared a big, long hug. It was a sweet moment. A very special one.
