For anyone who's read my blog, it is no surprise that I've always wanted a little girl. A daddy's girl, to be more precise. Having been such a part of my sister's family (as we only live 30 minutes apart), her kids have been like my first kids. So, in a sense, her daughters have felt almost like they were mine. I have watched them grow up from being pretty little girls to beautiful young ladies (in what's felt like the blink of an eye).
Saturday was their prom, so of course I wanted to be there to be a part of it. Seeing them in their prom dresses, I couldn't help but hear the lyrics to Steven Curtis Chapman's "Cinderella" playing in my head.
