Happy Birthday my sweet boy!


There are days when the wait is a bit easy, and then there are the days like today, when my son is turning two and I'm half a world away...

I love you baby boy! (Did I mention how much I wish those were my arms holding him?)

I know the wait must be so hard today! I'm sorry. Hang in there, though, because so soon those WILL be your arms holding him. And then you can make up for the birthdays you missed!! You're almost there!!!!!!!

Oh it is so hard. When we got Hudson's referral he had JUST turned two and had also just had surgery. I just cried knowing he had to have a b'day without a family and then have a painful surgery......
Happy Birthday Caleb!!! SO SOON!!!

Hang in there!
Lots of hugs!

Your "dahma" wishes you Happy Birthday, Caleb. I can hardly wait to hug you. In a few weeks, all of this waiting will be just a memory. May the days pass quickly until you are in your mommy and daddy's arms.
Love, NaiNai

Just wanted to let you know that I am praying for you today...and joining you in celebrating Caleb's birthday! I pray that God will multiply your joy on the day that you do get to hold him and celebrate his life as he joins your family. I pray also that God will comfort you in a special way today!
Blessings, Cheryl (awaa friend)

Happy Birthday, my precious Caleb.
Krisi and Ian may your hearts be full of thankfullness that he is doing so well and that he will soon be in your arms here in NC. I continue to pray that God goes before you so the transition from China to NC will go smoothly for all of you. Can't wait to get to know him and see our little Kylie relate to him!
God be with you, LaoLao

He is SO stinkin' cute! Today is tough, I know...I'll never forget that feeling of missing Caroline's birthday. But once you have him in your arms, God will begin to fill in the gaps, and all those things you missed will be overrun with the joy of having him home!

Love to Caleb!

Love to you all!

Hi, your son is absolutly adorable. We traveled to China last October to bring our son home and he celebrated his birthday while we waited to travel, funny our son was born on 10/7 he turned 3 yesterday.

Congratulations on your beautiful boy! It makes me want to start all over again and bring another son home.
