In honor of Princess Zoey's birthday...

...here is a video montage I put together chronicling the past few months of Zoey's journey.
Enjoy, but don't forget to turn off the music at the bottom of the page.

Happy Birthday Zoey (one day early)!

Love,

After drying my eyes I felt I had to write. Although I have followed Zoey's path since this past summer when at Otisco Lake and heard all the Princess I had never left a comment. Our church has put Ms. Zoey on the prayer list and folks often ask for updates on her. All are amazed by her and the family.
I am humbled by the strength, faith and love shared by all of you. What an amazing little girl. Thank you for sharing her with us.
Happy Birthday Princess Zoey.
hugs,
Dawn, Jim and Paul McRae:)

Caitlin, that was so precious...so beautiful! You are so right, you cannot look at Zoey without breaking into a smile! She just makes your heart swell. And how fun that Reid and Zoey's "first date" made it in the montage :). I think he will come a courting again this round...but loverboy needs a new haircut first! :)

Zoey Grace, from the bottom of our hearts we wish you a Happy 2nd Birthday. You could not be more adorable, more sweet, or more loved!

Victoria Strong said...

Happy Birthday,Zoey!!What a beautiful video. I have a cute story. The other day we had Sprouts TV on, and they were doing the birthday segment. They told anyone who has a March birthday to send in their pictures. I heard Bella,my 7 year old say"we have a March Birthday" I thought oh no who did I forget! Who's in March, I asked? Zoey is mommy, was the answer. So we are celebrating Zoey today in RI. Can you hear us singing? Kisses and prayers to you all. Stephanie and family

Happy Birthday Princess Zoey,
The nurses who were at your birthday two years ago and took care of you the first few hours of life send their greetings to you today. We hope and pray for a great day and many, many more happy birthdays to come. With lots of love from Bobbie who was at your birth and Patricia, your first of many nurses to care for you! Do you still have the candle I gave your for your first birthday?
Love,
Patricia

HAPPY BIRTHDAY SWEET ZOEY!
What a wonderful tribute to you! I have been trying to work on my own version for you all day and last night, but photobucket/scrapblog has decided to have technical difficulties on your big day! I am soooooo sorry. Mine pales in comparison to the slide show your sister made for you, you are one loved little princess!
We love you so much and hope your party last night was fun!!!!

Not a dry eye here. My without words the montage is exquisite. Hey Zoey, how does it feel to be TWO? Love you. I believe all the qualities mentioned in the slide show not only embody Zoey, but also her entire, tireless, loving, and devoted family. Thank you all for the many gifts you share. Thinking of you, xo Christi Harmnan
