This Day 5 years ago....
...we met our little Kobe. So tiny & fragile, I have never experienced a greater miracle than his life. I can't believe it has really been 5 years since I touched his tiny hand for the first time. At the time I wondered how in the world I would get through such a difficult trial...some days I didn't think I could keep going. But, here I am. Celebrating his birthday with joy that he is truly mine for eternity, and peace knowing that he is where he was meant to be...which is much better than this earth anyway. Yes, it is easy to forget that. And there are times that I feel sadness because he isn't here with me right now. But, I consider myself fortunate. Many people don't have to endure such a trial, but I believe those who do, will experience such a great joy during the millennium...when they get to raise their child in a righteous world without all the evil & temptations. He is a very special part of our family and we love him so much! HAPPY BIRTHDAY KOBE!
(This picture was taken 2 days after he was born. I wish I had just one of him without all the tubes...but regardless, I think he is a cute little runt. His perfectly formed body amazes me!!!)
P.S. Unfortunatley I had to spend the day getting a cavity filled...and it was a really large cavity so it took some time. Tomorrow we are going to make a cake and have a little party. We've never really done anything except visit his grave, but I think the girls are old enough (Quinnlyn atleast) to understand what we are doing and who it is for. It will be a fun tradition to start.
