A HUGE "thank you" to all of the Good Fairies that participated in Miss Baby's first birthday. I was SO moved by the thought and care you put into this project. So many people sent fun little 'extras' that I decided to make an additional box with "Goodies from the Good Fairies".Thirteen 'fairies' bestowed gifts and blessings upon my daughter in fairytale fashion. I put together their bequeathments into a book. Here it is!

Baby's mother asked the good fairies of the kingdom to bestow gifts upon the new baby. (There is a famous fairy tale about an evil, spiteful fairy who curses the new princess, but don't worry-that's just a story.) Baby's parents only invited good fairies. The thirteen fairies all graciously shared a gift with the new baby. What a lucky child to have so many nice wishes so early in life!
I want to give the gift of resiliency. I wish her the ability to adjust to different situations and not to get upset when things don't go as planned, since that's how life works most of the time. I grant her the strength to overcome and survive difficult situations. -Fairy Marcia
Resolve to be tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic of the striving, and tolerant with the weak and wrong, because sometime in your life you would have been them all.

And last but not least...I bequeath to Baby a sense of adventure. -Fairy Amy Griffin
