Wow. How did we get here so fast? I can still remember almost every detail of that night in 2008 when we got "the call" from labor & delivery that Patricia was going into labor. That we needed to hurry and get there! Those were some of the most confusing and joyful moments of my life! Would we be good parents? Would Josiah love us? Would we love him as much as a biological child? Are we ready for a trans-racial adoption?
Fast forward to today. Josiah is a Cub Scout that loves his siblings. He loves school and church and drawing and singing. And although he has his moments, he's almost always happy! He loves to make his classmates laugh (much to the chagrin of his teachers. He climbs into bed to snuggle with me and likes when I hold him close.
Happy Birthday, Josiah bear! Here's to the best 8 years of my life!
