Happy Birthday Little Moo. It's hard to believe you would have been 9 years old today. It seems like just yesterday that you were born.

In fact, remember the day you were born... it just happened to be one day before my niece, Marissa was born. I "knew" you when you were still a bump in your mum's belly. Your dad came online and shared you and your experiences with me and I came to "know" you. You're an amazing little girl and even though you've left your body behind, you are still very much alive. You've made a huge impact on my life even though I never met you in person. You had a lot to do in your very short life here on earth and you taught so much to so many people. Love. Courage. Strength.... And you loved to smile. Of course you made everyone around you smile too. In fact, many times the stories your parents shared about your shenanigans made me laugh ... all the way across the pond.

Jessica and I got to see you via webcam and saw what a cute little girl you were. You and Jess have so much in common! You both had heart defects, strokes and other complications every step of the way... but neither of you gave up. Every challenge you faced made you fight all the more. You accomplished your mission in this life faster than we would have liked. But you did it!

Bethany, you are very well loved and missed. Enjoy your Birthday in Heaven and dance and play to your heart's content. We'll see you all in good time.
