I prayed for this child and the Lord has granted me what I asked of Him. I Samuel 1:27

Today is Alex's 2nd Birthday. I don't know where the time has gone. Two years ago today, Jay and I had no idea that our precious little one was being born. We were still trying to get the last pieces of our dossier together and wondering when we might be parents.

Alex, I hope you always know how much your mommy and daddy love you. We think you are amazing and we are so glad that God picked you to be in our family.

We are having a little party tonight (just close friends/family) with pizza, cake and ice cream. This is also Derby weekend in Kentucky - the best weekend of the year!!

Here are some birthday pictures:
