A year ago his lusty cry as he entered the world reminded us how to smile again. Through the long newborn nights, his warm, squirmy little body slowly healed the places I thought may never again be whole.
And as I gaze at the curious mischievous toddler that somehow took my baby’s place, I am in awe. What an amazing gift we have been given.
Although I have millions of words I could say about Kai, today just a few will have to do.
I love you more than I could ever express, my little man. You are growing into an easy-going, adventurous, curious child – and you continue to bring smiles to our faces every day. You are a natural entertainer, and always have time for a laugh and a smile. Although no child should have to shoulder the burden of healing, through you, God has brought healing to your parents’ souls.
You are the child we dared to hope for … and every day I thank God that he chose to give you to us 1 year ago.
Happy Birthday Kai. Mommy and Daddy love you.
