15 Years Ago Today

I became a mom.

 After 5 years of infertility, he was a miracle to us.  But he was born "small for gestational age" (IUGR), and he has faced many challenges since then.  I love him, but he is not always the easiest child.  At his best, he makes me laugh with his antics...

but at his worst...well, let's just say it's been a difficult year, and many, many lives will never be the same because of it.

 Still, he's the child that God gave us to raise, placing him carefully, intentionally, lovingly into our family.  He's an answer to prayer.  He's the child who made me a mom.
And there's never a dull moment with him around...

This year, he's grown so much.  In so many ways.  And not the least of which is the very real physical surpassing of both his father and me in height.

Although that's what tippie toes are for :-).

And his laughter...his silliness...they keep me going when times are tough. 

And I just have to show you his eyes. They amaze me.  So beautiful...just like the person I know he can be...I know he is...on the inside.

Happy 15th birthday to my "tall boy".   As we learn together to consider our trials joy, I look forward to seeing more of God's plans for your life.
