Today, I am already starting to think of Izzy's next birthday. It will be the big 18 years of age. Wow! Where did the time go? She isn't a little kid anymore. I want to do something special this year. I was thinking of setting off 18 ballons into the air for her. Is it wrong if I do it in the general area of where they live? Say Walmart? So there is a litle chance she might see them. I would love honest answers. I would love to get some photo's of this and also a birthday card and document her birthday in the scrap book. I am afraid to tell my husband of what I want to do, because he might think I am crazy. Last year, my husband made a cake and it really was the worst cake I have tasted in my life. The cake was good, but the just the fact that the birthday girl wasn't with me made the cake hard to swollow.
Izzy will be graduating from school this time next year and the comment from my aunt was that Izzy has permission to contact me after that. In my state, Izzy doesn't have the right to find me on her own until she is 21 years of age. I am afraid to get excited, because the person who told my husband that hasn't been honest in the past.

I love the idea of releasing 18 balloons for Izzy on her birthday. And your idea to take pictures so you can include it in the scrapbook is a great one. I don't think there is anything wrong with releasing them close to where she may be. It's very sweet and I hope that Izzy is looking up at the sky at that very moment. Wouldn't that be a great story to talk about? :)
