Dear Little Boy,
Mommy’s told you how often daddy and I asked God to give you to our family, and three years ago this week, you entered our world. We had been missing you and waiting for you for a very long time, and so had so many other loving friends and family members.
Our friends gave lots of parties for you before you arrived, and we had blue balloons at happy parties, and we ate blue cake on blue plates with little blue napkins and opened blue gift bags stuffed with blue paper that mommy still uses for wrapping up your birthday presents today. You have been loved by us and those around you since before your birth.
Mommy’s tummy started to grow, and it was hard to believe that we were really going to have a baby. When they told us, “It’s a boy,” your mommy cried joy, and your daddy smiled misty-eyed very proud….
