(l to r) Madison, Nancy, Kimmie, Richard ~ circa 2001ARRIVAL OF JOY
Your family’s about to grow in size;
an angelic girl will be the prize.
And to be born around this time of year
is a gift that you and she’ll hold dear.
As each year you celebrate Christ’s birth
your daughter will compound His worth.
Your family’s joy will be increased
as His gift to you is with love received.
To share this special time with you
Is something that I’m proud to do
because I’ve found that, without a doubt,
Boon’s bunch is the kin I’ve done without.
I feel deeply that my inner child,
has been seen by God, and he has smiled.
He’s taken all my tears and pain
and taught me how to live again.
