Happy Birthday, 1 year old!

Once upon a time there was a family of 3, a Mom, a Dad and one very special little girl. This little girl wanted a baby sister and asked her Mom one day if she could have one. The Mom (who had been trying for years to do that) told her that she couldn't give her a baby, they have to come from Heavenly Father, so if she wanted one she needed to pray for one. This darling little girl would always ask when praying, "Please bless us with a baby", she NEVER forgot. After about 6 months of her sweet little prayers, the family found out that they were going to get just that. The excitement the little girl felt was slightly diminished when she found out it was going to be a baby brother instead, but that did not stop her from praying "Bless our baby to be born safely". After 37 weeks of growing, a beautiful little boy was born safely into this world. The family of 3 now became 4 and a year of joy, love and laughter has followed.
I feel like both of my kids have been born of Faith and perseverance, but Aram needs to know that he was born of his Sister's Faith and perseverance. We love having him in our home, he is more fun than any sister would have been and we are thankful to a Heavenly Father who listens and answers prayers in such a perfect way.
