Happy Birthday Caleb!!

Has it really been only 12 short years ago that we were given our very special gift??  What a great gift you have been.  We feel blessed to call you our son - and we know that God has BIG plans for your life.  We will never forget the day, at nine months old, when we were told you had a severe heart disease - that we needed to take you to the ER - to prepare for an extended hospital stay and not to leave your side because we wouldn't be taking you home.  But God was bigger than any heart disease and He gave your heart power that the doctors didn't even know it had!  And we are still in amazement some 12 years later when the doctors say they can't believe your heart ever had problems - that it looks stronger than ever - that can only be God!!  We love you, Caleb and pray BIG things for your life!  We're just glad that God chose to give you to us to be your parents - you are a blessing!  Happy Birthday Big Guy!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to one HANDSOME GUY! I was at the hospital 12 years ago today when you were born - and I was at the hospital that day you were admitted - and I sat by your bed and held you the whole night long! We are so thankful you are part of our family! We LOVE YOU TONS!

i think the birthdays are coming to soon ... there are days when I just want those baby days back ... Happy bday Caleb !!!! I know you are gifted from the Father and I know you will use your gifts for his kingdom ...

I miss talking to you !!!!!!

When you are harvesting your crops and forget to bring in a bundle of grain from your field, don't go back to get it. Leave it for the foreigners, orphans and widows. Then the LORD your God will bless you in all you do.
~Deuteronomy 24:19
