Today is my 50th birthday. Oh where has the time gone. Today is a happy occasion and a sad one for me. My father and I shared a birthday. We only got to share 30 together. I so wish that he was here to share my 50th with me. He would have been 93 today.
I was a special birthday present for my father 50 years ago. My two brothers and I are adopted as my mother had three miscarriages and could no longer become pregnant. My parents waited a long time for a baby girl and I was lucky enough to become their daughter. So here is the poem that I found for my father this year.
Happy Birthday Dad!
