Happy Birthday My Little Bear

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.

    I didn’t know whether to cry, laugh, or smile through this-so I did all three.
    I love him. And you! Happy birthday, Kai!

    Happy Birthday, sweet Kai. I wouldn’t say burden of healing is the right phrase – I think it is natural and effortless. And he has so much love in return.

    A year already! Happy birthday to the most handsome (well, he’s a tie with my own!) little man! You are so loved and cherished the world over.
    How I wish we could get together for a play date! Angus and Kai would be absolute mischief together!
