Happy Birthday Catherine!!!!

Today not really an Amecet story, but more a personal story...
My youngest daughter, Catherine celebrates her second Birthday!! Last year we did celebrate her first birthday in Amecet, not knowing that she would become part of our family! I am so thankful that we were able to help her and take her in our family. Her two big sisters, Sarah and Helen are crazy about her, Cathy brought so much joy and laughter into our little home.
Last night Sarah, Helen and me decorated our living room ( Dutch tradition!) And this morning we all enjoyed the excitement of Cathy, when she saw the balloons and decorations.
 The breakfast could not be too long, because Sarah (right) and Helen (left) had to go to school!
This is me with my beautiful youngest daughter! I know that God has a plan with this little girl and I am thankful that I can be a part of it! Please pray a prayer for Catherine, her health and her future today?
