My Story

Addison Rebecca Strode is our beautiful little girl. She is a wonderful sister, she is mommy's little shadow, she was born with a sweet spirit and we believe she will always have that attitude. God blessed us with Addie 4 years ago. She was nearly two months premature and she was a trooper throughout her stay as an infant in the NICU and she is showing the same character here. She shines with joy everywhere we take her, with everyone she meets. She has beautiful blue eyes, is in the process of growing her hair out so she can be like Rapunzel. She is a ballerina, and loves to ride her new big girl princess bike. Her favorite song is "Joy" I've got the joy, joy, joy, joy down in my heart. And she does. She loves Jesus. We love her.
