HAPPY FIRST BIRTHDAY!

One year ago, I held onto hope and daydreams of our second child. Four months ago, I held onto a picture of him. Today, I hold our beautiful one year old son. How is it possible? One year old! Every day he amazes me. Every day I fall a little more in love. Every single day I am thankful that he is ours.
Today I wish my son a very very special, and very happy first birthday. Today I am grateful for a woman, I may never know, that gave our son the gift of life, and I wish her peace.

The elation on your faces in Korea still kills me...I'd like to bottle it up and keep it in my pocket! A very happy, happy birthday to a beautiful little boy!

P.S. I'm not saying a WORD about the typo. ; )

Wow! I'm speechless (and teary eyed). That was so beautiful. You can certainly see how much love Kalvis has been surrounded by. I'm so happy he's finally home. He is one happy and loved little boy. Happy first birthday little man!
Love,
Janel

The video is beautiful and definitely tear worthy! Kalvis is so cute and has come such a long way! I loved seeing the infant pictures. How fortunate that he had such a loving foster family to capture all of those moments and pass them along to you. They are treasures for sure!

I'm a couple days late but Happy Birthday Kalvis! He couldn't be any luckier to have such a wonderful loving family. I had to keep myself from crying watching your heartfelt montage!
