Today is Joshua's birthday, which we are also taking the opportunity to make the "grand opening" of our facebook page. I chose this profile pic because this was the first day of life as we know it-- as parents. It's so bittersweet because I realize when I look at the expressions on our younger faces, that we never fathomed the greatest love we'd ever known could also cause the greatest pain of our lives. For those of you who have kids, you understand.
Though it will bring a few tears, September 17th will not be a sad day for us. Because we were lucky enough to be Joshua's parents, we were drawn closer to God by the hope of heaven, and have found a lot more in that promise during the process. We got to enjoy that precious child for three wonderful years filled with giggles, cowboy lullabies, clown waffles, and a bunch of other everyday stuff that we still miss about Joshua every day.
Congrats to several friends who are expecting their own miracles soon... It's a great time to have a baby! We will do something special with A.J. and Isaiah today to wish a Happy Birthday to Joshua in heaven.
Love you all,
L & T
P.S. Don't forget that September is Pediatric Cancer Awareness Month. Wear a yellow ribbon in support of the little warriors who still fight here and those who have won the battle and moved onto better things.
