Happy Birthday To My Miracle Boy

It was November 1, 1985
When a social worker placed him in my arms
This 4 month old 
Weighing only about 7 pounds or so
With a diagnosis and a 
Not so positive prognosis

We were told not to expect this to be like our first foster child
Not to expect too much out of this child
It was possible he was deaf, blind and paralyzed on one side
He probably wouldn't walk or talk
It was best if we didn't get too attached
He may not live a year

This was taken at 6 months
He was just as cute as a button

I won't lie
It was tough
LOTS of therapy
MANY doctor appointments,
hospital visits and even times
When we had to let him go for visitations with his birth family

But through it all we had Faith
Trusted God and Believed he would live
And he would be ours

On his 2 1/2 year birthday
The judge signed the paperwork
He became ours

Life has not always been easy with his precious kiddo
He's faced many challenges along the way

But God has been faithful
And this young man is truly a treasure

This momma is never quite sure about the Long hair
But it does make for a fun photo shoot
Which reminds me that we need to do another one
I don't have any recent photos of this kid

I remember praying for this unborn baby one day
My husband and I took a load of trash to the dump
While there, I saw a young mother to be
Standing on the side of the dump
While her husband was down below going through the trash

I knew the situation they lived in and I prayed:
What will ever happen to that little baby
Protect that baby and keep it safe
Give it a good home and keep him healthy

God answers Prayers Friends
Little did I know that several months down the road
He would be placed in my arms and given
A safe, protective and healthy home

I Believe In Prayer

This Momma is So Proud to call you Son
This Momma Loves you So Much
