Today is a special day in our family.

17 years ago today, after a long labor, I gave birth to my first Child. Shiloh has been a joy (mostly, LOL, Love you kid) ever since.
16 years ago today we celebrated Shiloh's birthday and he wore a sweater over his t-shirt. When my sister in law unzipped the sweatshirt, he was wearing a shirt that said "Big Brother". This was our way of announcing Wesley, who would be born some seven months later to be an incredible blessing to our family.
10 Years ago today, I missed Shiloh's seventh birthday, because I was in Vladimir Russia. That day I met the most amazing nine month old little girl and chose her to become my daughter. What a wonderful decision that turned out to be!
Also on that day, un beknownst to me at the time, not too far from Russia in the town of Lodz Poland a little boy was being born who would change my life when he became our youngest son. What an amazing little guy he is.

So today I thank God for my children.
Happy 17th Birthday Shiloh, where has the time gone? You are almost a man and I am so proud of the person you have become.
Happy Anniversary Paulina, I am so glad I met you and took you home. There is nothing like having a daughter.
Happy 10th birthday my Marvolous Marceli. You are an amazing person. I am so very proud of you and I am so very Glad God allowed me to be your mother. I love you very much.

Thank you God for giving me my wonderful children.
