Today is his 1st birthday. ..

It’s been a hard day for us to not be with him. But also a day full of exciting and warm thoughts about what his next birthday will be like when we hopefully have him home.  It’s fitting that his birthday is in January- which is also the month of Mike, Josh, my mom, and my birthdays! 

Our sweet son,

We hope you had a wonderful day today and could feel our love and joy for you, as well as our Heavenly Father’s love as he watches over you.  We hope that you got to play, snuggle, and eat cake.  We have loved you since before we even knew you, and even before this day you were born a year ago.  It is hard to not be with you today but very soon our tears will be turned to joy when we have you in our arms forever.

“Blessed is she who has believed that the Lord would fulfill his promises to her!”

‭‭Luke‬ ‭1:45‬ ‭NIV‬‬
