Can I ask you a favor? As if I haven't asked you for more than I can ever thank you for... your prayers, encouragement, and support are greater gifts than you'll ever know... but I have one special request on this special day. I want Caleb to know how many people have been following his story, how many people have prayed for him and thought of him. Would you take a moment to write something to him? Please, whether it's a response on this blog, a message to me on facebook, an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, anything you want to say long or short, just take a minute and tell him that you've prayed for him. I am going to print off all the messages and posts that come in and keep them in the box of things from this year. Send a message to Caleb and let's overwhelm him with the amount of people who love him! If you have ever said a prayer for my little boy, please take a moment to let him know that, and when he's older, we can show him your precious messages. It can be your birthday gift to him.
Happy Birthday Caleb! You and your heart are a gift to me more precious than I'll ever be able to tell you. You have made me a stronger, wiser, more humble woman and I love you more fiercely than you will be able to understand, until hopefully someday God blesses you with your own children. I am praying for you today, that God gives you many, many birthdays, and that you will not only have a strong heart that keeps amazing us all, but that you will have a spiritual heart that loves God with everything you have. You have a beautiful story to tell and I pray that God will use your story to help others see Him and His love. I love you, baby boy.
