HAPPY 4th BIRTHDAY
(Bryan's birthday is just a guess. He was found at approximately 10 months old and was given this birthday by the orphanage - so this is the day we will celebrate our boy.)
We can't wait to celebrate your birthday with you next year!
Today makes us miss YOU all the more!!
NEXT month you will JOIN our family - we can't WAIT!!
When Darren joined our family I saw other families celebrate their soon-to-come-home kids birthdays. I didn't get it. We didn't find out about Darren until after his 3rd birthday and he was home before his 4th birthday. This time I.get.it! Although today I feel a bit melancholy celebrating without Bryan - it also just feels right. We can't let his day go by without *his* family celebrating him! So we eat cupcakes and talk about all the excitement/changes ahead!
