One of our newer girls came to us with her two brothers and is a real sweetheart. She always blesses me with her "two front tooth missing smile" that is cute as can be. My wife and I went out to coffee last night and talking about a bunch of things as we enjoyed one another's company, but she commented on something that happened that really caught our hearts. This little girl came up to my wife last Sunday and asked with her heart winning smile, "Mommy, could you invent a birthdate for me so that I could have a birthday party?". When these kids came to us they came without papers or much background, and without a birth certificate. At that moment my wife and I agreed that we are going to make a trip to where she was sent to us from and find a grand parent or someone that might have some documents that we could use to find their birth certificates. I think now birthdays will take on a new meaning, and not to take that very special time for granted.
Blessings to you all and have a wonderful day!
