Happy 3rd Birthday Carson!!


A few weeks ago, Mr. Perfect in every way Carson, turned 3 years old. We had a fun day of celebrating this amazing little boy with his precious foster family. I cannot even begin to tell you what a complete joy Carson is. He and I are pretty much attached at the hip- and seriously, I don't know how I survived a day without him in our lives. God is so good. It was obvious that Carson loved the family tradition of waking up to birthday balloons all over his room. He giggled and giggled and jumped up and down- throwing balloons everywhere singing "Happy Birthday to me!" Trust me, this boy knows how to enjoy life! I simply cannot wait until I can show you his beautiful face and that smile that lights up our world. SOON!!!! (we are working it out so that we can have his adoption day and readopt Havyn on the same day).


Thank you God for the precious gift of Carson in our lives. As we celebrated his birth I cannot help but to think of all he has gone through in his short time on this earth. Things Lord that are unspeakable and yet Lord through it all you held him through it. You had a plan Lord, and I thank you and praise you that plan included us. We do not take a single second of that for granted. And thank you Lord for Carson's precious foster family who loves him as much as we do. Thank you God for their amazing family who pours all they have, heart and soul, into loving and healing these precious children you care so much about. Thank you Lord for every foster family who give and gives and gives some more- faces the unknowns, with no guarantees- yet does it out of love for a child. I pray your hand of protection over them all. Give them the strength to continue and peace in knowing they are truly doing what you call us all to do. I love you Lord. Amen.

Thank you for your prayer for foster parents. We've been fostering for 6 months now and your blog was a great encouragement to me to begin this hard road. Your prayer made me cry...thank you.
