Happy 6th!

I am a few days late but I would be remiss if I didn't write about Patrick's 6th birthday! He had a great time celebrating his much anticipated event. And his big gift from us - a day trip to an amusement park - has yet to be completed. He chose a baseball theme cake and had some great baseball gifts. He was so happy!

Perhaps I have seen the most growth in my sweet son, Patrick this year. It has been a year of tremendous growth and maturity. My ever-responsible son has continued to blossom into a selfless and sweet boy. How blessed I am to be his mom and I can't believe God chose me! I cherish the moments we spend in conversation, reading books, playing games, and working together. What a wonderful son.

Dear Patrick,

My heart is full as you celebrate your 6th birthday. It's so hard to believe how quickly the time has passed. With each passing year, I see you grow and change and mature. I love you SO much.

This year, I have seen you continue to be a leader. You take responsibility very seriously and I appreciate that. You work hard to include others and to take care of your brothers. You are a loyal and faithful son. I still cannot believe that God chose you to be in our forever family. I am so privileged to be your mom!

Patrick, I love how you excel in school and work hard. You do well in your classes and you have learned so much about self-control and kindness this year. I'm so proud of you! You are athletic and great at team sports!

You have a lot of interests including building with legos, playing games, riding your bike (!), playing baseball and soccer, reading books, and drawing & coloring. You amazed me when you learned to ride your bike in one day this summer! You also taught yourself to whistle and you lost two teeth this year - both were very big deals.

What a beautiful heart you have, son. I love to hear you sing and pray and ask questions.

I can't help but think of your birthmom who chose life. And I'm so very thankful for her choice and so thankful that God brought you into our lives and family! I am thankful every. single. day. I love you, Patrick - always and forever. Happy Birthday!

Love,
Mommy
