Next week is my daughter’s adoption anniversary and I wanted to share a special tradition we have with you. We look at that anniversary of the day she joined us as her birth-day into our family. I can’t believe we are coming up on 10 years. In some ways, it feels as if she’s been with us forever, and other days it seems as if we just traveled to get her.
Each year I write a letter to my daughter telling her what happened in her life that previous year and how proud I am of her. While I have shared snippets of these letters for her, I keep them in my possession to give to her when she’s older. She’s really grown up and mature and it’s time to share all the letters with her. Here is part of this year’s letter for you to read.
A Letter to my Daughter
What an amazing year you have had. It started with your participation as a soldier in The Nutcracker. You did a wonderful job dancing and it was such a thrill to watch you on the big stage. I am proud of how serious you take your dancing. Your talents were recognized and you were invited to be in the trainee program and student production of Alice in Wonderland.
If was such a fun production and you did a great job emoting as you danced. You also participated in the spring production of A Midsummers Night’s Dream. You made a lovely fairy. I was so thrilled to see that you got two contemporary roles in the recital part of the show. I had so many people tell me how amazing you were in A Ship on the Ocean. The emotional dance brought me to tears.
I am very proud of the daughter you’ve become. You are smart, creative, mature, determined, hilarious, polite, adorable and very loving. I love how you let things roll off you and that you are a good friend to all. We are so lucky to have you as a daughter! You inspire me to be a great mom and friend.
I love you!
My daughter is very busy with several ballet rehearsals and other activities each week. She needs to grab food for an easy snack on the go. She loves to take yogurt. Yoplait has a new product that is made with tweens/teens in mind. It’s Yoplait Go Big. It’s a big grip and rip pouch with the right amount of yogurt to satisfy a growing tween/teen’s hunger. Yoplait Go Big is made with real fruit contains no artificial colors or high fructose corn syrup. It’s gluten-free and a good source of calcium. I purchased Go Big at Walmart, but it can be purchased in the dairy section of many other stores too.
