God Bless Little Boys

This little boy will be 4 tomorrow!

I can't tell you what time he was born or any details of that day because I wasn't there. The first time I held Aaron was a warm September afternoon. We got the call earlier that afternoon that after a long interview process, we had been selected to become Aaron's adoptive parents. We went to the store his foster family owned and his foster dad called and arranged for Aaron to come meet us.

He brings so much Joy to our lives! He is uncertain about getting bigger. This morning he told me he was almost big like me and then he said he wanted to stay little. He is excited to have his first non-family birthday party.

Happy 4th Birthday, Aaron!!!

How awesome! Your story about Aaron made my heart do flips! You and Aaron and your husband are so lucky that your lives came together! It was certainly meant to be.

Hope the birthday celebration was terrific! Dana

PS Glad you're back to blogging! I do know how life takes over and blogging has to wait! It's OK....we all just do the best we can. Of course, family and reading should be first!

I didn't realize our boys are so close in age. My Handsome turns 4 on the 30th of January.
