Kelsey Rae

***I've tried to post this three times now! Hopefully it works this time!***

Kelsey Rae Marie Schuster turned 21 on September18th, 2010.  I have celebrated 4 birthdays with Kelsey now, and each year, I find myself more and more amazed.  Amazed that I have got to spend four years of my life with this beautiful (inside and out) young woman.  Amazed that we have been able to have *real* conversations, about life and love and everything inbetween.  Amazed that I have had the privilege of being her step mother, and *quite* jealous that I don't get to be more. 

Kelsey, you have been a joy to get to know and to continue to know.  I love you so much, and I couldn't ask for a better daughter. You have become an independent woman, who knows what she wants and isn't afraid to go for it.  You care how other people feel and you do your best to not hurt others with both your actions and your words.  You have matured, from a sweet young lady to a lovely, strong woman.  I am proud of you.

I hope that today, on your 21st birthday, you will remember how much you are loved, and that in the year to come, you will be reminded of that every day.
