We are so very proud of our little girl, she did it! It was so amazing to see Annika do so well up on that big stage. You could see the courage shining through her eyes, it was awesome! I couldn’t have been a prouder mommy!
Annika was so excited to have her God-mommy backstage with her!
A pretty bouquet of roses from God-Mommy Steph and more roses from papa, and a bouquet of flower cookies from mommy and daddy!
