Celebrations

Today was a day to celebrate....
 
 
To celebrate that day, 3 years ago, that our little G came into this world.

 We celebrate that he is here with us as part of our family on this very special day.

 We celebrate the changes that we've seen in this precious boy in the last 13 months.....
 


 
 Yes, today was a day of celebration.....





for us...


But I can't help but think of his biological family..how was their day today? Did they think of him all day?  I think they most certainly did.  I know that they love him dearly.  He went for a visit yesterday and came home with a cute new outfit from his Dad and candy and other little treats from Mom.

Were they thinking of the day he was born?  Missing him so terribly that it hurt?  Did they feel regret for the mistakes they've made to bring them to this point?  I just can't imagine not being with my child on their birthday.  

Our family is big on celebrations.  We celebrate the big things..birthdays, anniversaries, etc.  But we really don't have to have a reason to have a party..we'll make one up if given the chance...
Chicken wings were on sale and Mark can throw down on cooking some wings so ya'll come on over!!  That kind of thing...

We celebrate life...and the Giver of life....

We celebrate family....and friends...

And all that the good Lord has blessed us with...

 I pray that today was not very hard on G's biological family. It was the 2nd birthday that they have missed.  I pray they have peace and continue to work toward him coming home to them if that is God's will. 

 And if that does happen....if the day does come where we have to pack his things and say our goodbyes...

We will celebrate

Celebrate our time with him...and all the beautiful memories we've made....

However, if it's God's will for him to stay with us forever....

Well, let's just say that will be a bigger party! 

Happy Birthday, baby boy!  What a blessing you are to our family! You are loved more than you'll ever know!
