I have to use this day to tell how much God has blessed us... In 2002, I was told I had cancer and that I had 6 months to a year to live...That wasn't in God's plan...As soon as I went into remission I asked my doctor if I could have another baby...I always knew he was meant to be...In 2005, I miscarried...I prayed that if I wasn't to have another that God would take that desire away from my heart...But he didn't! I learned through it all that it is in God's time...Not Mine..In 2006, 2 1/2 weeks after my 40th birthday I gave birth to Timothy Luke...My first words I whispered to him after they handed him to me were"I've waited so long for you." I was at 4 years remission and our family was now complete...His smile lights up my heart everyday...He is a constant reminder of God's grace and that he gave me the desires of my heart....Happy Birthday my sweet 7 year old!!!

Happy B Day to your little guy. Children sure are a blessing to be treasured. I believe he looks like his mama.

I was so touched by your story. How brave you were to have Tomothy Luke. I have longed for another child because my youngest boy took his own life a few years back, but I am too old. You have been so blessed in many ways. I look forward to seeing many more pictures of Timothy Luke as he grows.
