Born at the Regional Medical Center of Memphis
Looking back at the announcement of her birth feels like a million years have passed. Only half a decade? Surely every parent can attest to the fact that time flies when it comes to your children. A blink of an eye brings a seemingly endless supply of memories, yet it still seems like only yesterday. So much between now and then….
Tatum, you have been a beacon of light since you were in my womb. Your growth these past few years astounds me. Other than your giant blue eyes [with flecks of gold in your right iris] you don’t even look like the tiny baby I cradled in my arms at the hospital. Watching you develop into an intelligent, confident, sassy,charismatic, loving, opinionated, silly, funny, sweet little girl. You are everyone’s Princess! I love you with every ounce of my being.
With infinite love, gratitude, and respect,
