Melanie is my miracle daughter. We share the same initials, but that is where our similarities end. Her qualities far surpass those I ever hope to attain. She is courageous, dedicated, and hardworking. There are so many great stories about Melanie that I would like to share with you. Her drill schedule, humanitarian projects, overcoming challenging obstacles, and now her beautiful family are really just the beginning. There is a reason her middle name is Joy. Melanie knows where happiness is found. And we are the lucky recipients of that wisdom. Nothing will prevent her from reaching her goals. She has demonstrated that many times already.
The amazing thing is that any list of her many accomplishments doesn’t do justice to Melanie. Though impressive, these are but a sampling with the greatest feats still to come. Look at Evie and Este! I rest my case.
