Please tell Lia I wish her Happy Birthday and lots of fun and happiness, a really good coming year, and a great relationship with her sister and parents. Today we remembered the day she was born. The weather was great and the sun was shining. In the morning Jan called us and said Lia Grace was born, he sounded serious and important. Until then neither of us knew if you were going to have a boy or a girl, so she was a surprise. Later that day we visited you in the hospital. She was so small that neither of us was confident enough to take her into the arms. You were really tired and happy. I assume this was the day that absolutely changed your and Jan’s life forever, so it is your celebration, too. And now she is three, speaks two languages, has a little sister and some days from now on will remain in her later memories when she is an adult. So our best wishes to all of you in this beautiful day!
