This is a poem that Henry, at 13 years old, wrote to mommy Alison - thanking her for Lily...
Lily was sent from you to me,
A glorious gift as anyone can see.
someone I will always treasure,
I will give her love beyond measure.
As the first few years may be tough,
We'll overcome it, sure enough.
With stinky diapers and her first few words
She'll look so cute with clothes and Big Birds.
So, thank you for my new little Sis,
A brand new sister to hug and kiss.
I know I'll love her to the end,
thank you for my new best friend.
