On a typical birthday at our house, the birthday person gets to choose their birthday dinner, and we all get together to enjoy the food, cake, and presents. On this day, we are all getting together to celebrate the fact that Katy is here, and that God has been merciful. The sobering events of the past two months have sent us back to the basics!
Since Katy is the first to check her Blog update this part of the message is for her. Daddy and I are delighted you were born, Happy Birthday! To your birth parents we would like to say, “Thank you for chosing life for Katy, she has been precious to us.” And to our Heavenly Father we do say, “Thank you that the plan you had for Katy’s life included us.” We love you.
Finally, Katy, here is a Happy Birthday message from the pages of God’s love story to us:
“The Lord our God is with you, He is mighty to save. The Lord our God takes great delight in you, He will quiet you with His love, and rejoices over you with singing.” Zeph 3:17
Love, Mom and Daddy
