A first for her twenty-first

Our friend Elizabeth celebrated her first birthday party on her 21st birthday tonight at our house. Can you imagine never having a birthday party? We asked her what she wanted for her birthday dinner and she said, "Meat!" So meat it was. Stephanie totally went all out with Sweet and Sour meatballs, scalloped potatoes, broccoli and brownies... You never know real joy and happiness until you give someone their first birthday party, 21 years later. You have to try it sometime. We met her mom for the first time. She did not speak english, so Elizabeth and Miriam translated. We went around and shared about what we liked about Elizabeth, and gave her a few gifts. It was a special evening for everyone.
