Less little girl, more young lady

Tonight was Stephanie's Chorus Christmas concert. The chorus has over 100 members between the 6th, 7th and 8th grade. Outside of Chorus is the Show Choir which sings, dances, and performs. Stephanie is in both the Chorus and the Show Choir. I went tonight, by myself and just watched my little baby up there singing and looking so pretty. Like, it was one of those moments where I saw her up there singing and thought, she is the little gift God decided to give to Jason and I 12 years ago! Wow! What if we had made other choices and not decided to have kept her and raised her as our own? Made me almost cry! Stephanie is my daily reminder that God can use bad choices/situations for good and that He has made her a girl who loves Him and strives to serve Him! I know that I am her mom but that girl is a continuous blessing to all who meet her! And she is at that stage where more and more I see less little girl and more young lady, sniff sniff! She is getting to be so pretty and it just makes me so happy that it makes me sad! I guess we all go through this as parents and there is nothing that I would change.....it was just a moment I had tonight and wanted to share with all of you. So, here is a picture of Stephanie from her concert tonight. You'll see what I mean....less little girl and more young lady. I LOVE YOU STEPHIE!
