Happy Birthday to My Wonderful Little Boy!
My Tom Sawyer is growing up way too fast! I can't believe he is 5 years old already. Since my little guy is adopted, the more memorable anniversary for me is on Tuesday which will be the 5 year anniversary of his arrival as a foster newborn in our home. He was such a tiny and sickly fellow (not yet 5 pounds and born to a drug addicted mom). The first few weeks we were so concerned with his health that we didn't even think about whether we would be the lucky family who would get to keep him. It took just over two years for the court system to make us his forever adoptive parents. What a blessing that was to no longer be his foster parents and be forced to discuss almost everything we wanted to do for him with a social worker. Thanks be to God for giving this wonderful little boy to my husband and me. He keeps us laughing and on our toes all the time. It is a pleasure to be raising such a brave, creative and loving son.
