Happy Birthday Peter!

Today is Peter's 4th Birthday. I wonder if he has ever had a cake or a present? I wonder a lot of things about Peter these days. Even doing something as simple as letting the kids play in the tub, I wonder, does Peter take a bath in a tub? Does he have toys in the tub? Who dries his hair?

Why would I be asking all these things about this little boy so many miles away? I will tell you why. We are now committed to Peter to be his Forever Family! I was so excited to learn this news today, and on his birthday, no less! I hope someone has told him, I hope he understands that he has a mommy and a daddy and a brother and sister that love him very much...I hope he knows we will move mountains to get him here as soon as possible.

That is our big news! We are so very excited, as are our families and many of our friends.

Now, I must go start his OWN page on this blog for the big adoption adventure! Here is the link to our FSP on Reece's Rainbow, where these wonderful children are awaiting their homes. Soon I will have my donate button and the story of how Peter came to be for us, but for now, I must get some rest!


  1. Congratulations! We have been watching Peter's fund grow and grow on Patti's blog, and have been praying for the perfect family to step forward to get him. We are excited for your family and excited for Peter to have found a family to call his own. Many prayers will follow you and your family as you move through the adoption process.

  2. Congrats to you & Happy Birthday to Peter! Have been following Patti's blog & donating to RR in the hopes that a wonderful like yours would step forward to claim him as their own. So happy for Peter & for you! I wanted to tell you that I also think that it's great that your son's name is Kai. Our son was born in Dec '08 & Kai was one of our top two choices for a boy name since my hubby & I were married in Hawaii. We ended up deciding on Joshua instead, but I still love that name.

  3. I am SO excited! I suspected you guys were Peter's forever family and in fact, I hope it was you. . .still I didn't know for sure until now! Happy birthday to dear sweet Peter.

  4. Im so excited for Peter and your family! I hope the time passes quickly and he is home with you soon!

  5. so excited for you : ) and guys are the perfect combination!!! looking forward to following your journey !!! God bless...good luck..i hope you get the last part of the adoption fund really soon.

  6. Praise the Lord! We are so happy for you! I think Peter looks like - his Forever Daddy! Can't wait to follow you on your journey! Peter got the BEST birthday gift ever - a Forever Family! I LOVE your quote " I never knew I wanted a baby with DS until I was given one!" God knew - didn't He - Awesome!!! : )
