Happy 2nd Birthday!

"Let everything that has breath praise the LORD"
(Psalm 150:6).

-the cake BEFORE she reached into it!

-she loved her balloons (perhaps her best gift)!

This past week our precious baby girl turned two (can I still call her our "baby"?). I can't believe she's two already! It has been such a joy and pleasure to watch her grow and develop into such a fun, loving little girl. She had LOTS of fun celebrating with some of her cousins and other relatives. She adores her cousins and had so much fun running wild in the basement with her cousins and siblings. She also enjoyed zipping down the slides at McDonald's. Yet, while we celebrated another birthday with our precious daughter, there was another mommy half way around the world, grieving the loss of her daughter. We are eternally grateful of the sacrifice that Deborah's birth mom made and we are so thankful to God for bringing Deborah into our family forever!

Happy Birthday Deborah. Her and Eyob have similar birthdays. Eyob just turned 3 on Saturday. How fast it has gone.
