Elias's First Birthday
"...Happy birthday, dear Elias! Happy birthday to you!" We surprised our little boy in his bedroom this morning with singing and balloons—two of his favorite things. Reading followed soon after, along with the opening of a couple gifts, ridiculous amounts of laughter, and even a wagon ride when the rain finally cleared.
One year ago today, we met Elias and held him in our arms for the first time. What a wild & amazing ride it has been since then! Our hearts are full of more gratitude, joy, and love than we ever thought was possible.
Thank you to each and every person who has cared for our son or supported us in any way this year. We couldn't have made it 365 days without you. God bless you all!
