August 7 2001 – Mya was born in Manteca CA. It’s amazing how time flies and she is turning 7 already. Mya has been a wonderful daughter and great sister. She is so witty and smart and I believe the world’s best negotiator! I remember spending the night in the hospital with Carrie while she was in labor with Mya. We were so excited for Mya to come. We originally decided to name her Mariah (we even told a few people that was her name) but after holding her and being with her Mya seemed to fit much better. I remember how we would warm her bath towels in the oven so after her little bath in the kitchen sink she would have a warm towel to be swaddled in.
