Happy Birthday Will

Posted on January 25

"What is happy birthday"? This is what our 14 year old son asked me tonight as I once again wished him a Happy Birthday and told him good night.

Can you imagine?

We had a small celebration in our room tonight and as he blew out his candles, he told us that he had never had a birthday cake before...

Can you imagine?

Will didn't even know how old he was.

Can you imagine?

We can't make up for the last 14 years but we can try our very best to make the rest of his life one of hope and love and lots of birthday cakes!

This breaks me y'all. This just should not be, but it is and it is for so, so many children. 

The door to Will's future could have closed tonight. 

It was so close to happening. 

Lots of emotions swirling in my heart tonight.

Please pray for all of the other ones, the children just like mine and just like yours, who will never know what it is to have a birthday cake or to be celebrated...  to matter to someone...  to be loved.
