Not flesh of my flesh
nor bone of my bone
but still miraculously my own.

Never forget for a single minute
you didn't grow under my heart
but in it!

Happy 1st Birthday Evan!

Today is Gabriella's foster brother's, Evan's, first birthday. He is being adopted by a wonderful family - Sue, Nate, and Ella (Gabriella). My heart breaks for Evan's family today and I know how much they must be struggling to get through the day. My thoughts and prayers go out to them. I certainly can relate, because next Monday is Gabriella's first birthday and I can foresee the miserable day that I will be having. It is a draining, empty feeling to miss so many of your baby's firsts - but missing his/her first birthday is icing on the cake.

Happy Birthday Evan!
