ANOTHER Birthday Boy!






I have, yet, another child with a February birthday!  Sweet Parker is FIVE today!  I doubt that the ophanage acknowledged his birthday today, but I am very thrilled to say, that this will be his last birthday as an orphan.  Next year he will be a Carlin, and he will learn what birthday celebrations are all about!

In the other birthday post I talked a little bit about what my children are like.  I know absolutely nothing about Parker, except that his little face is complete perfection.  Josh and I stare at his picture sometimes(we do that with all three of the little ones we are longing for), and we say things like, "Look how perfect his nose is!", "Look at that smile. It's so cute!"  We go on and on about the sweetness of his face, because, well, that is all we know of him.  We have a good bit of info about what Daniel is like, and a little bit of info on what Josslyn is like.  But we don't know anything about Parker.  I am just dying to meet this little fellow.  I can't wait to get to know his personality, his likes and dislikes, and his quirks.  I want to be his mother so bad.

His next birthday post will be filled with pictures and stories about our little man and what a blessing he is to us.

Parker, baby, we love you very much!  We can celebrate your birthday a couple of months late when we get you home where you belong!  You can have a whole cake all to yourself to make up for all the birthday parties you have missed while you were in the orphanage.  This will be the last birthday that you spend wishing for a family.  Mama and Daddy are coming for you soon!

Just wanted to stop by and say hi! I started following your blog a little bit ago- we were looking to possibly adopt Parker as well, but then found out that you guys had beat us to it ;) I'm so glad he has a wonderful family to come home to!! And we are on our way to a different sweatheart named Dillon!! God knew exactly what He was doing. Excited for your journey!!

I am so excited that Parker has a family. I have been praying for him to find someone. He looks so perfect--you and your husband are right. Can't wait to see updates on him!!
