Happy Birthday Timmy!

A very happy 4th birthday to our sweet boy, Timothy!

I am amazed at how much you have grown and changed since you came to us!  You were just one year old!
Such a sweet, little, chubby, bundle, of baby love!
I had not had any babies in our home in so long.  I longed for more children and felt so blessed to be given you.
You had some incredibly intense behavior issues from the drugs and neglect you went through.  The Lord has done a great work in you and is continuing to do so.  As the years go by, more and more of the hard behavior issues fall away.  Praise God!
You are precious!
You are such a joy and so very sweet.
 Oh my!  As your hair grew in...the angelic curls.
I was smitten.
What a gift from God.
I could not bring myself to give you your first haircut for a long time.  I just could not cut those beautiful curls off.
At first it was just a trim.
Then a full cut.  What a change that hair made.  Look at the grown boy under them.
We all love you so very much.
I am forever grateful that God brought you to us.
Now you are four!  Such a big handsome boy!  Your favorite show is Octonauts and your favorite character is Peso.  You wanted Aunt "S" to make him on your cake.  She did an excellent job as always!  Thank you Aunt "S"!
You wanted to go to the zoo for your birthday...but that is a whole other post...    :)

Timothy, you are growing up so fast.  God has helped you come so far and you are a treasure to us.  A true blessing and have the sweetest most tender heart.  May you always be the Lords and live for Him.  May God have His mighty hand on you all the days of your life.

James 1:17  Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.

Love, Dad, mom, Stephen, Antonio, William, Carolyn, Zeke, Elizabeth, Billy, Kinsley and baby "A" 


  1. Oh, I just love this post about Timmy and his birthday and his beautiful hair. I was so disappointed after Benjamin's haircut as it changed his whole look. He has very curly hair as well and I always remembered in the back of my mind that your son Timmy had a good bundle or curls so surely I could let Benjamin's hair show it's beauty too! So, we are growing it out again. : ) Anyways, Happy Birthday!!! I can't believe you are 4 already. You were only 2 when I met your Momma.

    1. Thank you so much Hadassah! You are a treasured friend. Cant wait to see Benjamin's hair grown out a bit. So sweet with their wisps of hair around their face. Timmy sure is growing up on me! Blessings!

  2. Goodness I thought I'd commented here. I'm quite scatterbrained right now. I have surgery at the end of the month so I'll be off my feet 6 wks. :o( I'll tell you more when I answer your e-mail. I'm sorry I'm so slow. It came on the perfect day for me to read. The Lord had you do that for me- I know that! That day I had needed a friend! :o) Timmy has grown way too quickly! He is adorable as always and what a blessing that God has sent him to you! I'm afraid we would never know who was supposed to be in our family if it wasn't for God! :o) He creates the most beautiful families when we are willing to follow! Happy Be-Lated Bday sweet Timmy! Love, Hugs and prayers from us all!

    1. Surgery! I will be praying! God surely does create our wonderful families. I am so very grateful. He is so faithful and good to us. Every moment, every day. Blessings!
