Dear Madalyn,

Today is YOUR day!  A day that both of your parents got to welcome you into this world.  You are loved by both of them very much and I know that they are extremely committed to you and your happiness!  And even though your dad and I can’t be there today to celebrate YOUR day… September 20, 2016 we are hope you have a great time today!

I know I came into your life unexpectedly, and you were hesitant to open up to me at first.  But you are safe with me, and I will always be patient with you.  You are strong and I know you will make it through any time of your life. I will always be here whenever you need me.   You should know it is not easy being in a step-mother role, I just want to love your father and care for him like he deserves…and because of that I will keep trying my best.  It may have taken us some time to warm up to each other and I know it won’t always be easy.  We don’t know how life will turn out for us, but let us make the most out of every day!  I probably will never live up to your expectations but I hope you know I will always be here for you.

You are a beautiful young woman with a brave soul and a big heart!  I am honored to be a part of your life and look forward to many more birthday celebrations with you!

Happy Birthday to Madalyn who is turning 14 years old today!  This is my 2nd year celebrating your birthday…and we have many more to celebrate!  We have come so far!  Enjoy your special day!  Naoma

How to make our Beach Cupcakes:  I asked Hunter & Ethan what kind of cake we should make.  We searched online and decided to make you these beach cupcakes since we know you love beaching and boating!  Hope you enjoyed them!
