Happy 1st Birthday Maddyx!

Today, July 25th, 2010, our son turned one!  On this day, one year ago we became parents to a beautiful Korean boy.  Our lives have forever been changed and we are thankful for this. 

Maddyx, we cannot wait to hold you in our arms and hear the sound of your sweet laugh.  Until then, you rest in our hearts and will remain there forevermore.  We celebrate the beauty of your life today.  We also send loving thoughts to your birth mother as we are deeply sorry for the sadness and loss that she has experienced.  On this day we thank her for the gift of life that she has given us.  

KISSES IN THE WIND (The Waiting Child's Lullaby)
I hold you in my heart and touch you in my dreams.
You are here each day with me, at least that's how it seems.
I know you wonder where we are... what's taking us so long.
But remember child, I love you so and God will keep you strong.
Now go outside and feel the breeze and let it touch your skin...
Because tonight, just as always, I blow you kisses in the wind.
May God hold you in His hand until I can be with you.
I promise you, my darling, I'm doing all that I can do.
Very soon, you'll have a family for real, not just pretend.
But for tonight, just as always, I blow you kisses in the wind.
May God wrap you in His arms and hold you very tight.
And let the angels bring the kisses that I send to you each night.
