One Year

A year ago today we welcomed a sweet baby girl into the world. A year ago we became parents.

"For I know the plans I have for you" declares the Lord "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11

This year has brought us happiness, tears, joy filled moments and challenging ones. Sophia grew from a sleepy little infant to an energetic, curious almost toddler.

Today, we celebrate the day Sophia was born, the day we became a family of three and above all we give thanks that God has so richly blessed our family.

Sophia, we love you sweet girl! You made us mommy and daddy. We cherish each smile, each kiss, each moment when you look to us to teach you something new. We pray that you will know the love Christ has for you and follow him. Never forget that you are special.

  1. Such a sweet post, mama. Made me tear up a little! I can't believe the tiny person she was at first - now so big and able to express herself. It will just keep getting better!

    Happy birthday to you too, Karen. It's been a big year for you (and Carl...I guess) ha ha. :-)

    Happy Birthday, Sophia!!
