WOW!  Our little one turned TWO today! I can hardly believe it!  Of course, when I ponder his vocabulary, his animation and new facial expressions as well as his curiosity and desire to explore his whole world, I shouldn't be surprised at all.

But I still sit here tonight, shaking my head when I realize this precious little man is TWO!

I feel so incredibly BLESSED to be Kaleab's mama.  And I couldn't celebrate this day without often THANKING GOD for his birth mom's decision of life.  I prayed for her today, asking God to protect her and provide for her.  Wherever she is.  God knows.

Becoming a parent is amazing.  No matter how it happens.  The birth of a child is DIVINE by itself!  But to then have our lives, here in America, be intertwined with the lives of our precious sons, who lived halfway around the world......well, that just dumbfounds me!!!  Only God can accomplish such great things!!!  And for our family union I am so incredibly thankful!!!

Dear Little Peanut, you bring light into each and every one of my days.  The laughter that you bring to our home as well as that you bring out in me, bless my heart.  Your curiosity and awe with the simple things of life remind me of the beauty of this world that God created.  {What an artist He is!}  Your love for me touches my heart in a way I simply cannot put into words.  It overwhelms me in the most beautiful of ways.  Your sweet kisses and hugs and cuddles, bring my love for you to overflowing and I often cannot stop the tears of joy that slowly roll down my face.  The way you come to me for help blesses me.  The way you come to me to share in a new discovery breathes new life into me. Daily.  Aaaaahhhhhh........and the magical way in which you melt into my chest, and I can feel your heart beat and hear your every breathe, as your arms gently rest around my neck or shoulder, and your head sinks into my being.........I have no words.  Other than THANK YOU!  Thank you, son, for blessing me beyond my wildest imagination!  THANK YOU for trusting me.  And loving me.  And desiring me as your playmate.  THANK YOU for blessing our family with you.  THANK YOU for sharing your entire self with me.  I am enjoying every.single.minute of being your mama (and Sami's too)!  I wish you a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Kaleab, and I can't begin to tell you how MUCH I look forward to many, many, MANY more years with you!!!
All My Love, Your Mama
