This is the 4th birthday that David has celebrated since he became a part of our family. It is amazing to me to see how much and how fast he has grown. I really miss 5 year old David who would sneak in our room and slept by our bed; AND 6 year old David who was frightened by his big new school; AND 7 year old David who worried I would die like his birth mom; AND 8 year old David who told me that I love him "too much", but I'm glad 9 year old David is able to start this year confident of himself, his place in the world and as fearless as his peers. We have been through many milestones in 4 years and I look forward to many more while wishing we had lived his first 5 years together too.

the right gift.
|David's 1st picture|
For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat,
I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink,
I was a stranger and you invited me in,
I needed clothes and you clothed me,
I was sick and you looked after me,
I was in prison and you came to visit me.
