Wow what a whirl wind the past few months has been. I don't know where to begin other than to thank my Father in Heaven. I have spent the past three months on a roller coaster one which ended just two days ago with the most miraculous gift from my Father in Heaven. We have been blessed with the arrival of another perfect daughter. This one seems like so much of a miracle to me and I cant not for a single moment begin to thank my Father in Heaven enough or all of our family and friends for all the prayers and fasting. Siena, for months we have been told that if you arrived you would be a miracle and that you are. The past few days when I look at you I know for sure that you are a miracle. As I sit here in my hospital room I stare at your pictures and thank the Lord every minute for you. I love you so much more than you could possibly imagine. I have loved you from the minute I knew you were going to be part of our family. My love intensified for you every time the Dr's told me you were not going to make it. My testimony has grown because of you, my faith has grown because of you and my desire to serve the Lord every day of my life has grown because of you. I live every day of my life for you and your brother and sister. I do everything I do to try and make you and your brother and sister happy. You are my life. Without the three of you there would be no reason for me to live. Even though I know you have a long road ahead of you before you get to come home I already know that you are stronger than any Dr can imagine. You just like your brother and sister, who too are miracles in their own rights, have a special mission here. Already when I look at you I cant help but smile. My heart aches to hold you. I don't know if you know it but I sit outside your incubator and sing to you each day. Tonight as I visited you we had our first prayer together and I thanked my Heavenly Father for you. Thank you for bringing me so much happiness in only the two short days you have been here so far. I know that throughout your life you will continue to bring so much joy and happiness to your daddy and I. We look forward to being able to being able to teach you, to love you and to eventually spend eternity with you. Siena you are a miracle to me. Thank you for the lessons you have taught me already. I look forward to learning so much more from you. And watching you grow into a beautiful woman. I love you baby. I always will love you now and forever!
Once upon a time in a far far away land lived a beautiful maiden named Alisha. She loved her simple life but felt that something was missing. Until one day a very handsome prince, prince Lee, flashed up on her computer screen. She talked to him for a while and soon realised that he was the something missing. After a few months of chatting they finally met and Prince Lee realised that the beautiful maiden was what was missing from his life too and he asked her to marry him.
It has now been 11 years since that day when the beautiful maiden and handsome prince were married. They now have three gorgeous children, Princess Kaylee (8), Prince Spencer (5), and little Princess Siena (2) and are living happily ever after.
"If you are still in the process of raising children, be aware that the tiny fingerprints that show up on almost every newly cleaned surface, the toys scattered about the house, the piles and piles of laundry to be tackled will disappear all too soon and that you will - to your surprise - miss them profoundly."
~President Thomas S. Monson
