Can it really be??

Our beautiful Baby is a year old today!?! Where has the time gone? It brings to mind the song my Mom always sang to us......Where are you going my little one?

It is hard to believe that a year ago today I was so unsure of what was to be.....it is a lot like being pregnant and waiting for labor to start.....waiting to hear if/when your baby's Mama would go into labor. I was actually doing the dishes feeling like he was never going to come out when I got the call. It was A, and I was so excited to hear from her.....she said we are on our way to the hospital and she said I just hope I make it.....I thought she was kidding. Nope, the baby was born on the way to the hospital......you heard that right, Jason was born in the parking lot of Long's Drugs. Jason came out being the center of attention and has relished that place ever since!! To say he is still the center of attention would be an understatement......he is a bit of a rockstar in our area. Besides being the baby of the family, all of the kid's friends are quite smitten by Jason too. So, he is NOT lacking in the attention department! :)

Jason is a sweet happy baby and we love him so much. Every day we are grateful for him and for his birth Mama A, who has blessed us beyond anything we can ever repay.


To her; what you have done is the strongest, bravest thing that any woman could ever do. I am continually amazed at the maturity it had to have taken you to trust us with your precious son. The love that you have in you, the strength, the faith.....hopefully you will be able to draw on that even now and during the rest of your life. It will take you places that ordinary (me) people can't even reach. I love you. There is NOT a day that goes by that we are not grateful, not one. We could not imagine our life without Jason. Thank you.
