We first met in middle school. I was a new student in a sea of well-adjusted 8th graders. (This was now my 3rd middle school after multiple moves.)
The truth be told, I don’t remember exactly how we met. But I can tell you exactly what I felt.
Gratitude. Welcome. Home.
Emily was a gift. She was brimming with joy and wit and she had a way of making all of you feel welcome. We could talk a little too loudly, laugh even louder and whenever I was around her, I knew I was home.
Emily met Matt and they fell in love. I knew he was the luckiest. And ask anyone who knows them…together – they help you know gratitude…welcome…and home.
And now – they hold Miss M…the little girl that grew in their hearts until the day she was FINALLY in their arms.
Matt, Emily and Miss M – I am forever grateful that I got to see you all together. I look through these images and I could cry. Prayers ANSWERED. Hearts open and full. And joy beyond measure. Thank you for sharing all that you are with me.
