I’d watch her leap and twirl with such grace and ease with her long ringlets following in suit, afraid that she’d dance them right off her petite head. Riann at age fourteen, was spunky, playful, just a little shy and positively stunning. Fast forward more than a couple years and she’s still that same burst of sunshine. In the six years since they joined their lives, Riann and Chad have journeyed side by side. They’ve known profound love. They’ve known profound loss. They’ve stayed on the sidewalk, journeying together as a family who appreciates every single little victory. That spunky, playful, stunning girl has grown into a beautiful woman, full of depth and strength, surrounded by two guys who adore her.
Riann, Chad and Jackson, you are beautiful, individually and as a family. Thank you for our frolic in the wild. It was late summer perfection.
