It's almost that time. Yes, the BIG day. The day we never thought would come. The day that almost a year ago we could never have envisioned...as we were way too sleep deprived and still thought we would die of lack of sleep. But we made it! Yes, folks, it is almost time for Ella's first birthday bash! I have cried about this several times this week: not out of sadness, but from remembering when there was a time I wasn't sure if I'd ever have a child's birthday in this home. What a joy it has been getting to know this child of God!
