Favorite Quote:
She ran away in her sleep and dreamed of paradise.

Her long,golden hair and those big brown eyes,
All the loving messages she would send
Would lead to some unbreakable ties,
And a friendship that would never end.
I had waited forever for this day,
And prayed every night since I was eight.
But when it came true I had nothing to say,
Because I had realized this was my fate.
When she came through the door the first time,
I did a double take and looked back twice.
I stood with my mouth open like a mime.
This gift was a miracle, not just nice.
It was that special morning on Christmas Day,
I got my dog Molly and no longer had to pray.
