Something special

June 10th 1983 was one of the most memorable days of my life. It's the day that my daughter Amanda was born. 

From the beginning there was no holding her back. She was always on the go and ready to face the world. She was an adventurer and an explorer and always with a smile on her face. 
And then before I knew it...
 ...she had grown up. A whole new world ahead of her.
Though I haven't been the perfect mother, I was given the perfect daughter anyway. Happy Birthday Amanda.
What I wanted most for my daughter was that she be able to soar confidently in her own sky, whatever that may be. Helen Claes

  16. Considering her reaction to this, can there be any doubts that you were (and so very, very much still are) as wonderful a mother as she was a daughter? (If you are still having trouble, go ask Duke, and I'm sure he'll explain it you.)
