One Blessed Year


Today ends our first blessed year with Zoe Ann Stanfill. Exactly 1 year and 27 minutes ago at this moment, she arrived screaming into the world, eyes fastened shut, determined to keep in her memories of heaven as long as she could. When those eyes opened, we found inside the most joyful, happy little spirit the Heavens could offer. Zoe wakes up with a smile on her face every single day. With a grin and a giggle, she bounces around like a ray of sunshine determined to bring light to every facet of our home. Even outside the house, her little pigtail and toothy grin win the hearts of all who meet her. Her happiness wins our unending love. Her determination wins our respect. And her gentle spirit makes us all want to be better people. We love you, Zoe Ann! Thank you for coming to our family.
