Happy Birthday Baby Girl Bex

Tonight we are celebrating little Rebecca's 4th birthday, her first with us. The party will be held at our local community splash pool, the same little pool where we spent most of the summer. Rebecca loves the water so we thought it would be fitting to have it there.

Rebecca is such a blessing to us and such a sweet spirited little girl. While thinking about her upcoming celebration tonight I couldn't help but think of her singing the birthday song to us within a few days of her joining us, her forever family back in January. The director of the foster home where she lived told me the babies loved to sing that song and would sing it over and over, naming each of their friends regardless of whether or not it was their actual birthday.

So tonight, I can't help but think of her little starfish friends from the other side of the world and send good wishes their way. For the ones who have joined their families, I wish there was some way we could all be together on each of our children's birthdays. And for the little starfish still there, little Rebecca loved all of them so much ... I pray for them to find their forever families too and somehow know that a little girl who used to live with them loved them, loved loving on them and loved singing the birthday song with them.

Happy 4th Birthday Rebecca. I'm so glad you're home with us now!
