Today we celebrate the changing of our lives forever. After years of trying to begin our family in every way imaginable our little boy found his way to us. It was the guiding hand of a loving Heavenly Father who set in motion a string of life-changing decisions and events that lead to his special addition to our family. I would be lying if I said there wasn’t a sense of fear on the day of his birth. I mean, how could anyone have the courage to place a child they had carried and couldn’t help but love to someone else? It was something even I, as much as I wanted, could understand how unfathomable this decision was. It took a very special birth mother. The moment I held my son for the first time I thought “whether you get to be mine forever or someone else’s you are a miracle and have changed me forever.” I held him and allowed myself to drink in the moment. My Mr. and I looked at this little being and emotions overwhelmed us. This season has forever taken on a new meaning and I cherish this beautiful little boy who is forever ours. I am reminded of the birth of our Savior, for whom this season is truly about. I have an abiding love for the miracle of His birth and coming into this world giving light and life to the world. I am grateful for this personal reminder to me of the grace and mercy of a loving Savior who has borne the sadness of the years when we felt this miracle might never come, and who through His life made it possible that we will be together forever. We pray that we may live a life of gratitude for our special Christmas miracle as he is truly a gift from God.
Happy Birthday My Little Mr. We love you, more than you know.
