This is Maddie.
One of the prettiest flowers in my Garden of Life.
These photos were taken a couple days ago before she and her friends graduated from the 8th grade. These five girls all came to the house for dinner and to get dressed before leaving for the ceremony. Makes me happy that she has a home where her friends are always welcome. Maddie is the one on the far right.
There has to be at least one silly photo.
Can't forget the shoes!
Maddie is our step granddaughter and we've known her since she was five years old. She has two grandmothers who live nearby and love her very much, so I don't play that role in her life. But I am her friend, I love her, I'm interested in her life and always wish the best for her.
