S: Rachael Faria - Age One, The Second Year
BC: A two year old is so many things. A tiny discoverer of butterfly wings. A hugger of teddies, a sweet sleepy head. And someone to dream for in bright years ahead. A special new person who right from the start, has a place in the family and a course in your heart. And just when you think you've learned all the things, that your dear child is, and the joy that she brings, a hug or a grin comes with such sweet surprise, that love finds you smiling with tears in your eyes.

1: God made the world with towering trees, Majestic mountains and restless seas. Then paused and said , "It needs one more thing... Someone to laugh and dance and sing. To walk in the woods and gather flowers... To commune with nature in quiet hours." | So God made little girls With laughing eyes and bouncing curls, With joyful hearts and infectious smiles, Enchanting ways and feminine wiles. And when He'd completed the task He'd begun. He was pleased and proud of the job He'd done. For the world, when seen through little girl's eyes Greatly resembled Paradise.
