Valdiney turned 17, Josue 15, and Lucas turned 12. Being able to celebrate three birthdays at once, was a lot of fun. We made up a card for each boy, and had all the other boys sign it. At the end of the night, before giving the cards to the boys - I took a little peak inside, and saw the messages the boys wrote. Some were just their names signed, some said 'happy birthday' and their names, and then there were the few that really wrote something meaningful and sweet. It makes me so happy to see that little by little these boys are realizing that birthdays truly are a special day and should be celebrated.
There were (HUGE) slices of cake, super awesome cards that sing from Paul and Nancy, many smiles, balloons that made baby Ana so happy, and a movie to end the night. But the very best part for me, was seeing Josue walk around thanking everyone for coming to his party. Seeing the joy on all their faces was priceless.
Valdiney, Josue and Lucas....a very happy birthday to you three! It is such an honor for Isanon and I to be able to celebrate this special day with you all. It is truly our hope and prayer that you three felt loved and special. We are excited to see what this new year will bring for you guys, and feel privileged to be able to share in making this day special for you. The happiest of happy Birthdays to each of you!
