Happy 5th Birthday, Kindred!!

Monday, January 14, 2019

We decided to skip a birthday party-party this year because Naiya's counts are down making her more susceptible to infection and Nova is in Kindergarten with lots of other kiddos. We hated the idea of excluding one or the other so we made Kindred's birthday super special and she will have a half-birthday party in July to make up for it. I asked Kindred what she might like to do and she said she wanted a new crystal from the crystal store. So, I immediately thought about Cosmic Connections in Nashville and thought that, while we were down there, Kindred would LOVE to eat at Rainforest Cafe.

I was mistaken. It scared the whiz out of her. Just like it did Dylan. But all the other kids around seemed to love it.

She was enjoying herself until the thunderstorm happened. The lights get low, thunder rumbles, strobe lights flash like lightning and the animals go nuts. It's either super cool or extremely traumatizing, depending on who you ask. Kindred hid under the table just like Dylan did.

Me and my girl have logged many rides on carousels and I love that. I have enjoyed every single one.
Kindred, I don't know what cosmic contract you worked out to be here...against all the odds of a balanced translocation, here you are. You were my destiny all along, I just didn't know it. Oh how my heart ached for you for so many years. You have been the biggest surprise yet. I love you so much. Thank you for every single moment.
