May 16th, 1982. I was 5 1/2 years old. This is the day that my parents took me to the temple to get sealed to them for time and all eternity. It is the day that my "blood lines changed" and in the eyes of our Heavenly Father, I became their daughter. What a wonderful day. I remember being in the temple. When I went through to get my endowments, I walked in and remembered IN COLOR everything I would have seen that day 14 years earlier. I knew immediately which sealing room we were sealed in and everything. I know it was never an easy thing to raise me when they thought they were done having kids, but they did a great job. I have the best parents in the world. I am so grateful for the sacrifices my family went through to do what was right. It's not always easy or convenient to do what is right. I know without the intervention of my parents, I would have possibly ended up dead. I am grateful that my parents were encouraging when it came to a relationship with my biological dad's family. They didn't have to get along with them and make things work, but between my parents and my grandma and grandpa Albrecht, I had the best childhood ever!!! I am so blessed. I hope I never forget that. Thank you mom and dad for taking that leap of faith so many years ago. I hope I have made you proud. I love you.
