Tuesday's Unwrapped: Birthday Tribute

Seven years ago today a miracle was born.  Seven years ago today one mother made the decision of her life.  She gave birth to a 9 pound 3 ounce baby boy and then handed him over to another.  I wonder if she held him, counted his fingers and toes, fed him at her breast?  Or did she just hand him over to a stranger?  Did she keep him a few days and agonize over what she was about to do?  Several thousand miles away, another mother waited anxiously for this child she'd never seen or heard of yet.  But He knew...

Seven years ago today, hope was born.  The life of a small family in South Carolina would forever be changed and made complete by this sweet boy born in a foreign land.  Today I would like to take time out to wish Zachary Carlos Morrison

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! 

Mommy and Daddy love you and are so proud to call you their son.  You bring light to our days and most of all, you are a child of the King.  If we were blessed to be your parents for no more than that, we are grateful we had the chance to lead you to your true forever home in eternity.

Happy,Happy Birthday sweet Zachary! Alison, enjoy your day celebrating the precious son that God has given to you! I always say the only thing we miss when we don't obey God is the blessing He has for us... can you even imagine had you not obeyed God when He called you to adopt!? What blessings He's showered you with since you brought Zachary home... thanks for sharing those blessings with us!
