"Plum, Our gift to you this, your first year, is to plant a tree in our yard just for you! The tree is called a Newport Plum (because that's part of your name too). The tree blooms in the spring (because so did you), and everytime we look at it in our yard, we will think of our sweet Goddaughter!
Each year on your birthday, we would like for you to come to our house and take a picture under your tree so that we can see how much you and the tree have grown! We love you so much. Happy 1st Birthday!"
"Though a tree grows so high, the falling leaves return to the root'"
