Twelve years ago today, I gave birth to my first child. As new parents, we had no idea what to expect or do with this precious baby that God had blessed us with. Not to mention, God made him even more special so we had to learn to take care of him a little differently. Cade was born with a cleft lip and palate which presented us with certain challenges. He has had several surgeries and sees more doctors than our other children. Plus, he still has surgeries and procedures to face in the future. He is and always has been a trooper.
Cade is very hardworking. He is my right-hand man during the day. He is such a great helper. I have many helpers but he is the chief of helpers. I told him the other day that he won’t be able to leave me until he helps me train up his younger brothers and sisters to be helpers like him;) We are working and striving to get others to mature and help out in this way.
God has blessed Cade with a desire to help, love, and serve others. He loves babies and it shows with how he takes care of our smallest ones. Most of all, he loves our Lord Jesus Christ and strives to honor Him daily.
Thank you Lord for blessing us with Cade. May our Father continue to raise him up to be a mighty man for His kingdom!!!
Happy 12th Birthday,
