Today is all about Addi!

Today is my daughter's first birthday, and I am so proud. She is such an amazing little girl, so much spirit and personality. I can not even begin to express how much I love her.

We are having a party at a park here in town. She is going to have some little friends over to play, it will be fun. No ponies this year, she is too little, but there will be a bigger blow out next year. I would go ahead and schedule it, since the race may be the same weekend.

I know that a lot of people that read this are parents. I used to not understand how you could love someone so much that you would do anything for that person. I met Christi and felt this way, however, having a kid is different. If something does happen to me, I know that everyone might be sad, but it will get better for those people with time. Addi is a different story, because it would linger with her whenever someone asks about her daddy. I have promised her at least 5 years. I did that believing in medical science and God, knowing that they would take care of me after that.

Please say a little prayer for Addi today. She deserves it for one, and for two, she needs all the help she can get being my daughter.... :)

Bo! You almost made me cry. It is so moving to read your blog and hear about all of the things you are going through. I love you, Christi, and Addi to death and even though we're not "close", it tears me apart to watch all of this. You are truly an inspiration to everyone here at FIG, and anyone who reads your blog. Your spirits are always high and you are never in a bad mood. We're all pulling and praying for you and your family. Keep blogging, and come by the Life Department more often! *hugs*

Happy Birthday Addi! Even though you have never met us, our daughter Piper always wants to see your picture when we get the computer out. We tell her that your mommy is a person that we love and admire, so by fault you and your daddy get the same love and admiration. Have the most wonderful day!
Love,
