Happy Birthday Lydia! We hope they love you in Gainesville as much as we do here.
Dr. Krist and Ms. Sara
To our favorite family, You are doing such a terrific job raising Lydia and you have such a lovely group of people who adore you both and Lydia. The pictures are wonderful and it is perfectly clear that she is loving life. One piece of advice I can offer, other than that of everyone else is...begin reading to her steadily everyday. That is one thing that we did with Mac and he not only loves reading and literature, but loves communicating with others. I see you have seedlings as one of your sights. This was a great tool for our family and many of our relatives order books for birthday and Christmas. This is helpful, because many people don't know what to give....we believe books are precious and stay with you for a lifetime! We wish you weren't so far away, so please keep updating your pictures, we love them. I can only describe them to Mac, but he enjoys my commentary. You both are incredible, I never would have dreamed of openly sharing Mac with others at such an early stage...you are an inspiration to others. I forgot just how beautiful and precious he was when he was little and your pictures have encouraged me to dig into the archive and look back. It also makes me realize how fast they grow, whether they have a disability or not. So treasure every moment with her. Love and hugs, Sandy and Mac Potts. PS, we would love your address so we can forward you any new CD's Mac will do in the future. By the way, he is planning to do one for new mothers!

I have been waiting on pictures!! You did a great job. Thanks, they were so good, Lydia is growing too fast..looks like she is getting a tooth or already has a tooth. The best picture was the one that Lydia was being held up with just her feet. Lydia you have great balance!!! Will we see you before June? Sure hope so, we need to hold and kiss Lydia.

It was great seeing you guys over Christmas. You both have done a wonderful job with Lydia. I don't know how Anthony made such a beautiful child!!! Hope to see you soon. Love you all!!!
I am Tito, Michael's friend from Tampa from way back in our early 20's. He's filled me in on your story since he adopted Lucy and when I saw Lydia on the website I fell in love with her. I shared your website with my family and they all fell in love with Lydia too. Michael was very excited and happy to have found Lucy and enjoys her company much. Congratulations on your acceptance to law school. Merry Christmas to you all and best wishes for the new year.
Hi Anastasia!! Thanks for sharing Lydia's site

A big hello from
Kentucky. Your website is great, I always wanted to do one but
never had the talent or time. Lydia is adorable. She is so cuddly
looking, Eli is a bean poll, no cute rolls anywhere. Hope we can meet up
sometime in NC. -Julie, John, Ean & Eli (John's 2nd daughter and family)
Our new grand niece is such a beautiful baby. We hope to meet her

very lucky to have two loving parents to love her and take care of her.

Lydia's website is so neat. Thank You Love, Grammy Lou
Dear Anastasia-I love Lydia's website. It is fantastic. What a talent you have, and what an adventure. I will share this with other families if that is OK with you! She is gorgeous! Your family and friends are lucky to have a way to get to know her. A hug to Lydia. Thanks for website. It is wonderful. See you soon! Deborah
and Dad. What a wonderful web site for a wonderful baby and her
wonderful parents. Thanks so much for informing us. We think of you

Aunt Manda loves her some Lydia!!! Love you guys!!! See you soon.
What a lovely website. Your daughter is so beautiful!! I see both you and Anthony in her. I'm really looking forward to next month when she and Caden can play together. Your journal was very touching and made me cry. Motherhood is the most wonderful thing that could have ever happened to me. These babies bring us so much love, laughter, and life to our house-holds. I have never experienced such a love in my life. I am so happy for you and Anthony! Like I said before, I can't wait to meet her and give her a big hug and kiss. And I'm sure Caden will be kissing her too. He LOVES little girls....and gives lots of kisses. It's going to be so much fun!
