To My Precious Baby Girl - Amira

It’s hard to believe it’s been 4 years since Amira was born, alhamdullilah. She is honestly a gift sent from God. Truly she touches everyone that comes into her life. She’s loving, tender, kind, and determined. She has brought a confidence out in me that I don’t would have otherwise come out.
Truly our children come into this world to teach us----not the other way around.
To my precious baby girl, Amira, may Allah bless you always, keep you safe, and guide you at all times. Happy Birthday Baby! I love you so very much.

I dedicate Martina McBride’s song “In My Daughter’s Eyes” to Amira.

In My Daughter's Eyes
In my daughter's eyes I am a hero
I am strong and wise and I know no fear
But the truth is plain to see
She was sent to rescue me
I see who I wanna be
In my daughter's eyes

In my daughter's eyes everyone is equal
Darkness turns to light and the
world is at peace
This miracle God gave to me gives me
strength when I am weak
I find reason to believe
In my daughter's eyes

And when she wraps her hand
around my finger
Oh it puts a smile in my heart
Everything becomes a little clearer
I realize what life is all about

It's hangin' on when your heart
has had enough
It's giving more when you feel like giving up
I've seen the light
It's in my daugter's eyes

In my daughter's eyes I can see the future
A reflection of who I am and what will be
Though she'll grow and someday leave
Maybe raise a family
When I'm gone I hope you see how happy
she made me
For I'll be there
In my daughter's eyes

Salam PH,
Ahhhhhhh she's a dream come true, mashallah. She's a lot of fun. She doesn't normally smile for pictures, so when we are able to capture it, it's a miracle. :-)

Salam Anglo-Libyan,
Shukran kabeer! No greater blessing I could have asked for than Amira, alhamdullilah. Allah akbar, Allah akbar, Allah akbar.

"Masha allah" she is very (as the blog girls would say) CUTE :) and i am sure she takes from her mother and let me tell her mother that she is a wonderful & strong person and let me tell Amira that she is one lucky girl to have her mother :)

I have this pretty kids music video sung in Lebanese Arabic, the 2nd half is about a pretty girl called Hala but the singer (Nancy Ajram) calls her Amoora, I hope you and Amira enjoy watching it :o)
