4: My name is Leah Smith and I am 15 years old. I have an awesome mom and dad and two older brothers and a Golden retriever named Pumpkin. I was born in San Antonio in 1995 and I love the Spurs. I attended Concordia Lutheran School before moving on to Lutheran High School. In my spare time I love to sing, play basketball and to hangout with my friends or watch my favorite TV show CSI: NY. In the Summer I go to camp, various trips up north to see family and rest up for the next school year. That's enough about me what about you? | Dear Reader, | Yours truly, Leah Smith
5: Prologue | The significance of my title is pretty simple. Adoration means love and I need love. I can not be the person that I am without Love from God, Family and friends. I don't think anyone can be a happy person without some type of love in their life. This writing assignment has helped me to grow and to see that I am a special person in my own way. God loves me for who I am not what I do and what I have to offer.
