Children really are the best wish come true, especially when the road to fulfilling the dream is bumpy.


You made me have tears:-)

You are very talented, not only as a craft artist but also as a writer. You have a great way with words. Thanks for writing this blog - I return again and again because of your writing and photography.

Happy Birthday! What lovely photos of what looked like a divine birthday celebration. All the best wishes.


Happy birthday Alicia. What a beautiful post. You have been blessed indeed!


Happy Birthday! Beautiful post indeed.


I remember celebrating my birthday after we had our little boy and I couldn't think of a single wish because I too spent so many years wishing for the same thing. It actually felt so wonderful not knowing what to wish for when all wishes have come true.

Happy birthday!
