Happy Birthday, Cynthia

Happy birthday, my sweet girl. Today you’re probably getting a little party at your children’s home. Eating some sweet treats and getting special attention, and the “happy birthday” song sung especially for you (although I’ve just learned you probably wish it was for you and your best friend who now lives with his forever family in the U.S.)

We pray this is the last birthday you spend without us. We pray you feel loved and safe today, and every day. We pray that God is already preparing your heart for your forever home, beginning a healing that could very well take a lifetime.

We love you, little bug. Be happy today, and wishing you a wonderful fourth birthday.
