The Birthday Boy

So, it is now Birthdays galore time of the year basically. Let's the next ehh 2 ish months. we have 6 birthdays. not kidding. Let's see. Andrew...TODAY!!! Mom...tomorrow! Hayne...August 20. Anna Grace...September 11. Me and Ainsley...September 20. {yes, we share our birthday!} So, be prepared for lots of birthday posts....:)

Today, our precious boy turned 5....


I seriously cannot believe that the little boy we held in China for the first time only a year and a half FIVE.

That seems so grown up to me. What is happening to my babies? They are growing so fast. Our teeny Princess is going to be 5 in September! I just can't believe it.

So, today...we are celebrating our boy. and everything that he is.

He's funny, loud, so boy, sweet, spicy, can give you a pout-y face that you can't help but laugh at, with a smile melts your heart, shy, a total power ranger, a fighter, strong willed, passionate, will NEVER give up, loves his Mama, adores his Daddy, is completely protective and in love with his Mei Mei, handles his siblings like a pro, can melt this sister's heart with a sweet little "i luh you she she" {jie jie; big sister in Mandarin} and so much more.

He is such a blessing. We are so blessed to call him ours. To tuck him in at night and to get to love him forever. Oh how blessed we are!

Today, I think of his precious birth mama. we don't know what her story is but we know she loved our boy. She did what was best for him. She risked her life. Today, my prayer is that she is comforted. That God gives her a peace beyond all understanding and that He lets her know, her/our boy is fine. He is amazing. He is loved, knows about Jesus, has a family. He is a miracle. I pray that she is comforted. I will never be able to thank her enough for this blessing. She gave us this precious boy. Thank you.

Andrew JianHui,

*I will post his 5th birthday pictures soon. I got in from California tuesday night and we left for another vacation/china reunion Wednesday morning. We are still here so I have not had much time for anything. The picture at the top is recent. It was taken Thursday night, our boys last night as a 5 year old. so bitter sweet. More to come!
