A Brief interruption For Miss Sophia

One the fourth of July in 1999 I began having contractions with my second child, Miss Sophia.  I was so excited! a Fourth of July baby, how cool is that! Well, the contractions slowed and eventually stopped. Sophia decided to hang out a bit longer. Maybe it was all the commotion of the fourth.  Maybe Sophia heard the celebrating and the fireworks and thought  "no way, I'm not sharing my day with the whole country, I'll just wait and get a day all to myself". And that's just what she did. Two days later on the sixth of July she entered this world and our lives. 
She came in  to this world on her own terms and basically adapted that way of thinking ever since.

Sophia portrays a tough outer coating but has a heart of gold. And also a heart for children, which since the birth of Emilia has just exploded. She knows all your children and most of RR too. If it weren't for Sophia I wouldn't know who Miss Brigita was because it was Sophia who found her and became her prayer warrior.

You're a wonder Sophia! You're like the wind. Sometimes gentle , sometimes fierce, and always unpredictable.
Remember, Sophia to always pursue your passions,  remember that sometimes it's ok to let your heart lead, and above all... always keep Jesus beside you. 

We all love you! And wish you happiness and blessings a bound in this your 12th year! 

And as you already know... I love you more, Mama

For many reasons I think of Sophia when I hear this song. Sophia your possibilities are endless.

"You just got to ignite the light and let it shine, just own the night like the Fourth of July. cause baby you're a firework, come on let your colors burst!"
