Our Middle Man is 15!

I am convinced that every mom needs at least one son!! I wouldn't suggest THREE unless you know of a doctor that gives strong drugs!!! (Just kidding!!) Truly, these three keep me laughing!!

But today we celebrate that crazy guy in the middle - Mr. Caleb!
He turns 15 today!

This little man came into our lives a short 15 months after our first blessing and he's always been the "typical middle" child. I hate to say it, but it's true - he knows when to keep quiet and when to talk and when to lay low and stay out of trouble!

He's our blessing that we were told at 9 months old - might not make it out of the hospital alive. His little beating heart pulled through and he is our miracle!

He truly makes me smile! What a delightful guy!

He is quick-witted and yet one of the most tender guys around!

He has taken to both of his sisters from the first day we got them in China - the first one on the computer to see the blog updates while we were in China and then spent hours playing with them after we got home.

He adds a bit of crazy to our family - yep, we'd all admit that one!!

Caleb - you are a joy - we are SO blessed to have you as our son!

We pray you continue to grow in Christ and develop into the great young man that you already are!
We love you!

How well I remember that morning at the hospital! How well I remember sitting and holding him all night in the hospital at 9 mo. so Mom could go home and get some rest! What a special young man!
We love you!!!!

Happy Birthday, Caleb!! From the Leaver Family!!


During my prayer time tonight, you guys came to mind and I thought to myself--today is Caleb's birthday and oh what a miracle baby! I remember time at 9 months when he was in the hospital. I love the pictures of him younger that you posted too cause I remember seeing several of those as well. :)

I hope that he enjoys his day today!

Happy Birthday, Caleb!! Hard to believe that 6 years have passed since I first saw Caleb's photo in one of your family pics with Chloe!

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
