Today: Her 19th Birthday

This is a post that a  Florida friend made today in memory of Emily.  It's been over 5 years since she entered the arms of Jesus, and today would have been her 19th birthday.  I especially like this because it reminds me of Sonja's prayer when Emily was very little and we were realizing just how limited her language ability was going to be.  Sonja prayed that someday we would be able to hear the words "I love you" from Emily's lips.  Not only did she quite often declare "I luh you merry, merry, mush,"  she also flashed the sign-language message to us regularly.
