Nine years ago today, the sweetest, most amazing little boy was born.
Soon after his birth, he was sent to live in an orphanage.
For seven years, he called that place home.
Soon after his seventh birthday, this little boy was sent to the worst place imaginable–a mental asylum for adults.
At three years of age, he was made available for international adoption.
For nearly six years, he waited.
Hundreds of children joined their forever families.
But he waited….
To be chosen.
Today, we celebrate.
(Excuse the after cake, purple tongue. He LOVED his cake. Sweet boy.)
On this, his ninth birthday…
…and his very first…
WITH A FAMILY!
Who love him like there is no tomorrow.
And feel so very, very blessed.
That God chose them.
What a gift from heaven Kael is to our family!
No words can express what JOY he brings us.
Happy birthday, precious boy.
We are so, so happy that you are here with us.
How we love and treasure you with all of our hearts.
Thank you, Lord Jesus, for the beautiful gift of this child.
