Today while we all wait for news, a child who has become very special in my heart is celebrating his first birthday. This birthday will be celebrated from a distance. Family, and friends surround this child with prayers and love with the hope that never will another birthday go without the hugs and one on one love from his family. Miss Noodle and I spent many hours with A and he is such a sweet soul. This birthday wish goes out to not only A but to his Mom and Dad waiting for him , and to all the children who will spend their birthdays in an orphanage. We have all now had to celebrate birthdays, holidays, and important milestones from 7000 miles away. Knowing we are sharing these moments with each other may ease the knowledge that we are in this alone, however it does not ease the pain and heartache we feel that we remain apart.
Sending love across the miles Happy Birthday! Love Noodle, Ann and Brian
