In her post, Marjorie wrote: "This photo was taken last night, shortly before midnight, when I was trying to wake her up to greet her for her birthday. This is the Julia we know, and love.
"She never sleeps without her 'blankie' which she owned since she was born, the blanket which she refuses to ever let go of.
"The Julia we know, the daughter I raised for 19 years, is an extremely funny girl, adventurous, hyper, beach lover, a dreamer, a hard worker, a wonderful sister, a clingy daughter, super loving, very sensitive, but make no mistake, she is a very strong girl.
"Happy Birthday to you my dearest Juli, this past year you have proven to me how I can never underestimate your strength, and you made me even prouder of you for that.
"To me, to your family, the people who know you and love you the most... You are wonderful. And more beautiful in the inside than what we see on the outside. Stay the happy person that you are.
"Happy Birthday to the one I know will never leave my side, as I will never leave yours. I love you more than you can imagine. Happy Happy Birthday!!!!"
