Happy birthday, Olivia!

Thirteen years ago, this spunky kid came blazing into our lives.  The description of Olivia's Meyers-Briggs personality type, ENFJ, includes words like: opinionated, productive, organized, loyal, helpful, warm, & persuasive.

Olivia chose to make muffins to share at SITAG's morning tea break.  A room full of people sang happy birthday to our blossoming beauty.
Olivia is also our comic relief and keeps us laughing over things we wouldn't normally have thought were funny.
Some sweet friends spent the night to help us celebrate some more, e-mails from adopted SITAG family around the world brought more blessings, and Skype even worked briefly for a static-full birthday song from my parents on a mission trip in the Ukraine.

We're so grateful for Olivia and for the joy she brings our family.  As the Lord continues to work in her life, she showers us with more and more joy!
