I wanted to post this yesterday, but I'm taking two recertification courses and had some reading to do.  I think I've actually posted about this before.  If I could only express exactly how much this means to me...

April 26.  A birthday.  Not mine--that would actually be today--but a young man named Kyle.  Seven years ago.  His birthday celebration at a Chinese restaurant, and one of the fortunes in the 
fortune cookie happens to say

Three days later, Lily Grace was born.

Happy birthday, Kyle.  I celebrate the fine, young man you've become, but with your birthday, I can't help but celebrate the miracle that was foretold on a small, white piece of paper stuck in a cookie in a Chinese restaurant.

  1. I can't believe that Lily is turning 7 years old. Seems like yesterday she was just born. It touches my heart that you remember Kyle's birthday and that you have held on to that simple little piece of paper after all these years. I continue to pray for you and your family. I love seeing updates on sweet Lily and am amazed at all that she can do. She is definitely a little miracle. Hope your birthday was wonderful.
    Love to you all,
