FOUR!!!!


Happy 4th Birthday Carson!!!

 I can't believe my baby boy is 4 years old already!! Not a day goes by that I don't thank the Lord that you are my child. Sometimes, I sit back and just watch you~ and I am reminded of what a miracle you are. I am reminded of the people in your life who were there before me, the ones who loved you, fought for you and poured themselves into you so that you are who you are today- a walking miracle.

And I am so very grateful.

And I am grateful for a system, that while not always perfect, saved your life.

 Because today you will wake up early with that beautiful smile that you share with me every.single.morning. You will know nothing but safety and love. You will know you are cherished, adored and wanted more than anything in this world. You will blow out your candles and giggle with your brother about how you are both four years old now...

and we will celebrate the miracle of you.

And I will stand back and watch you once again, relishing in the moment, and knowing without a doubt that you are one of this worlds greatest gifts.

Happy 4th Birthday Carson. I love you more than you will ever know and I am so very, very grateful you are my son.

Amy, Wow, just found your blog from treasures in jars of clay...I read your "my adoption" post and it is so powerful! Do you give permission for copying it? I own a resort in northerm MN and want to put it in my cabin journals for my guests to read. I will give the credit to you, but I think it could be life-changing for some people! Thank you for your ministry...and what a beautiful family you have!
