Tonight I want to talk to you about Caroline's independence. In so many ways, over the last 16 months it's simply amazing how I've seen Caroline become independent. She's capable of helping herself to her toys, putting her shoes on, throwing something away, petting the cat. In other ways though, she's still so dependent on me. Tonight I pray that her independence keeps growing, but that I have patience and wisdom to enjoy the things that she still needs me for.
