I never knew I could love someone so much. I will never be able to express the love I feel for my baby girl. This last year with her has been the best of my life and I honestly don’t know how I ever lived 25 years without her. She is my entire world and I thank Heavenly Father each day that I get to be her mama. I am beyond blessed.

Mama loves you Isla Rose.

I teared up reading her birth story again. You can read that here!
