Chrysta was my first baby girl and spoiled ROTTEN! Her dad worked nights when she was infant so she was Mama's girl ALL the time. I let her sleep in my bed nights since night feeding would be easier that way. I dressed her in dresses and ruffles every day. As she grew she became such a funny little pip. And STUBBORN! She is a Junior in high school now. She is so beautiful. She went to Ukraine with us and has a heart for orphans. She also understands that some people struggle and she stands up for them, even when it means friends turn away. I am proud to be her mother. She enjoys going to church group every week. She likes horses. She shares a room with Sophie. She struggles sometimes with growing up. She is planning ahead to college and what to do with her life. I know that whatever she does, it will be the thing she really wants. She would fight tooth and nail to the very end if she had to do something she didn't like. She is a girl that knows her own mind. I love her. I wish she hadn't grown up so quickly. I wish she was my tiny baby. She still wants Mama. When she leaves home for HER life it will break my heart. I will miss her terribly. she is firmly lodged in Mama's heart.
