Happy Birthday My Son!!!!

Today is Judah Marvin's birthday!!!! The orphanage is wonderful-they pick out a day to celebrate each child. Since the doctors estimated his age to be around five weeks old when he was brought to the hospital the orphange chose July 7 to be his birthdate. This is a sweet picture a volunteer sent me from last year. Look how proud he is of his birthday poster!!!! Today he is four years old-happy birthday little guy!!! I wish so badly that I could be there with him today. It makes me so sad that I have missed four years of his precious life--but I will celebrate with him all the rest of his days. How amazing that the Lord knew four years ago that this little one would one day be a part of our family. Today I have also been thinking of his biological mother. I have been praying for her. I do not know if she is alive, but I continue to think of her anyway. Not only have I been thanking the Lord today for Judah's life, but for her's also. I am in awe how God would shelter and protect this little guy in such a mighty way and allow our stories to become one. Happy Birthday my precious boy!!!! Mommy is praising the Lord for your life!!!!

This verse I have been praying over him today-Jeremiah 29:11

For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future..."
