Well here we are one year later.
What a year it has been and these are just a few of the highlights.
It has been a great year.

Adam, you are right where you belong. We love you and are so happy to call you our son and brother. You have touched our lives and so many others. You are an inspiration with your courage and determination. There is nothing you can't overcome.

We look forward to next year as there will be so many milestones. Kindergarten is coming and you are so ready! Mommy is not sure if I am ready or not. We will meet each challenge this next year holds together. We are your family and family always stays together.

We love you!

2 Corinthians 12: 9-10
But he said to me "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weakness so that Christ's power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ's sake I delight in weakness, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
