Happy Birthday Baby Boy!!

Today you turned TWO years old!! We are so so so thrilled that you were HOME for this birthday with your family. Even though you've only been physically with us for a few weeks, we adore you from head to toe. Your mama is so glad that the Lord knows exactly what we need, even we when think we are all complete. I cannot imagine a day for the rest of my life without you in it!! This time last year we didn't even know who you were, but the Lord had already prepared us for each other in so so many ways. Tonight I am grateful for your birth mother, who chose life for you and cared for you for 9 months in her tummy. She must be thinking of you tonight as well. Just in case you ever wonder, she has not forgotten you. God, in His wisdom, gave us lots of little truths in His Word.

Isaiah 49:15 (New Living Translation)
15 “Never! Can a mother forget her nursing child?
Can she feel no love for the child she has borne?
But even if that were possible,
I would not forget you!

Even if it WERE possible, Asher, the LORD did not forget you...He formed you perfectly in His image and He loves you even more than mama and daddy ever could. You have been created for HIS glory, little prince Asher!! I am so so proud and honored to be chosen as the one who will kiss your boo boo's, wipe your tears, and cheer at your ball games!!
