Ten years old, baby girl. And yet, just yesterday you were a newborn. When we met your Nanny in Cambodia she told us your nickname was "Nyella"--"busy girl." Your personality shined through from the moment you were born. You are a very. busy. girl! It's what you fill your time with that makes me so proud of you.
Nurturing.
Teaching.
Creating.
Giving.
These are gifts the Lord blessed you with on this earth, and gifts that we are all blessed to receive through you.
Without you Taevy, the Gillispie Fam would not be the same. I can't imagine us without you. I look forward to watching many more decades of your life. I sometimes can't wait to see what the Lord is going to do through you--all the ways that you will change the world in order to glorify Him!
Congratulations, my daughter, on reaching double digits!!!
Happy Birthday. And remember, you'll always be my Taevy Baby.

Robin, I think youre picture really speaks about where she's at in life. She looks sort of tentative and shy--a little uncomfortable in her skin. She is growing into this "young lady" form so quickly! Even in her mind I think she feels stuck between two worlds right now. Anyway...I just see a lot of TRUTH in your photo, rather than the smiley cheesy pics I take!
