A little girl who took her first step and spoke her first word is now a young woman. Cheyanne grew up in a family who loves to spend time together and who cares deeply about each other. The love that she received growing up with her family was the same love she shared with all of her guests on her 18th birthday. Although it was her day, she could not help but think about her guests if they had eaten or to make sure all of them was taken care of. That day, we saw a young woman who is selfless, humble, and kind.
As family and friends spoke about Cheyanne on her birthday, she was emotional realizing that there were so many people who care deeply about her. She so was thankful for everyone. As a young woman who will one day make decisions for herself, she has all the support she needs. With every journey or path she takes in her adulthood, she will always have the support of her family and friends. It is important for all of us to have that support in our lives. There will be bumps on the road, some exits will close, and sometimes even detours will detract us from our destination; however, it is the people who care about us the most who will guide us when we are lost. Cheyanne is fortunate to have all the people she needs to become the woman her parents raised her to be.
