Today, is my REAL birthday, the one and only REAL birthday. This is how I introduce myself to my many family members and new friends.

I was born at 1:19AM August 25, 2000 at Carolina Medical Center in Charlotte, North Carolina. My length is 20 inches. My weight is 8 pounds 4 ounces.

I was born near the end of summer when tree leaves are just beginning to show their autumn colors. It is the time of year when the earth gives us its harvest of food and beauty. Birds are beginning to gather in large flocks before their fall migration. I am starting my first migration, and I am looking forward to discovering my new surroundings. The day I was born was very pleasant, bright and sunny, and not too hot. Everyone rejoiced.

From Gran Gran and Granddaddy Folk

Dear Virginia Grace,

How exciting it was to welcome you into the family on the 25th of August in the year 2000! When you decided to come, you did not keep us waiting long. You came within an hour after your mother and dad left for the hospital. We could not believe it when your dad called us at 1:40 a. m. to tell us that you had arrived.

You are a beautiful baby and look so much like your sister Claire. What fun the two of you will have together in the years ahead. You and your cousin McGuire Hunter are the two members of our family who were born in the first year of the 21st century, and you are also close in age to your cousins Connor and Thomas Folk.

We look forward to watching you grow up and enjoying many family get-togethers with you; your mom, dad, and sister; your aunts, uncles, and cousins.

You have a wonderful mom, dad, and big sister, and we love all of you so much.

Welcome to the gang, kiddo. I hope it's not a bad omen that your birth weight was the same as mine! :-) On the plus side, you have a lot more hair than I do now. Sigh. Congrats to your great parents and grandparents.

From Nick and Maria Edwards

Dear Virginia,

Good to see you! Welcome to the planetary sphere. Does it seem strange or just strangely familiar? Anyway, you've certainly landed with some fine folk (pun quite intended). You know, I met your mum and dad far away and quite long ago in a place of beautiful mountains called Nepal. Hope you get there one day and to many other exciting places during life's long journey - make sure not to miss my home town London. For now, enjoy the warmth of home, family and all that great milk. Hope to meet you and your sister Claire before too long.

Lots of love to your mum and dad,
Nick and Maria Edwards xxxx
