So, Happy 6th Birthday AJ!  I can't believe it's been six years since that snowy day in Alaska when I got to see you for the first time.  You are quite the little girl...so different than your sisters.  I hope you have a fantastic day. I love you and your sisters more than you will ever know.  Everything I do, I do so you have all the opportunities I never had. Always know that I will do all I can for you and whatever I have is yours.  Whether we end up home in Alaska or not, I want you to have the life you deserve.  I love you.  Happy birthday.
