To My Little Heart. The day I met your mother I knew I was ready to be a man. The day I met you I became one. You’ve shown me what true strength and courage is and you taught me that the love of faith and the faith in love is one and the same.
I’m in awe of your ability to defy the odds and I marvel at the confidence with which you produce miracle after miracle. You smile your way through life and your light touches everyone around you.
I’m proud of you because you are your mother’s daughter, I’m proud of you because you are
Sophie Tei-Naaki Lee Kodjoe.
Happy 10th Birthday my little heart. I love you more than you will ever believe.
