Happy 1st Birthday Cadence!

Today is the day! It is very hard for me to believe that a year has gone by. Wow. How life has changed! A year ago today our lives started a new trajectory. I know that it hasn't all been easy, but it certainly feels that way right now. I guess hindsight isn't always 20/20. I do know that I love this little girl with all my heart. Her innocence and happiness is infectious. I work and have worked with A LOT of kids. I honestly can't think of a little one who is so consistently upbeat, social, and engaging. Regardless of my parental bias, Cadence has given me a renewed appreciation for humanity and a perspective (that I once had) on how to again view the world. If we all still had the optimism, wonder and openness from our youth, the world would most definitely be a better place. Happy Birthday little girl. I love you. ~Dad
