Nehemiah’s Celebration

Yesterday our sweet Mr. Nehemiah Judson 
celebrated his 11th birthday!
{His 2nd birthday home!!}
What a joy this fellow of ours is.
We are hopelessly smitten.
I know I say that about all my treasures,
but seriously,
this guy just brings such joy to our family.
Lover of God.
Quick wit.
Sweet spirit.
Just love him so much!

As always, we started with breakfast in bed…
waffles delivered by the waffle-bearer….
{seriously this littlest brother always has a different get-up on}
{Nehemiah loves bacon}
and hash browns…
I regret I didn’t get a group shot…
But everyone was singing and cheering him on…
including our favorite missionary and LM
singing from overseas and Ruby was giggling
cause Ruby l*o*v*e*s* birthdays! 
The day was filled with all the fun that Nehemiah had envisioned….
including playing lots of Legos!
 I have many thoughts about precious him rolling around my head….
thoughts that need to be verbalized…
and will share those soon as I pray about exactly to share them.
But suffice it to say, 
we cannot ever thank the Lord enough that this 
son of ours is home.
He is a delight to everyone who meets him.
And frankly, we get to.
Yes, we do.
We get to love him up close.
We get to show him the enormous love that 
Almighty God has for him.
We get to tell him how loved and wanted he is.
We get to.
How blessed we are.

Nehemiah would love any birthday wishes you would send his way.

He’ll grin his sweet, kind of shy grin.

So wish-away – if you are able!

    Happy Birthday to you! You are an absolute blessing… a true miracle! Legos are great, aren't they? It sounds like you had a pretty good day. Thank you for loving God… you are teaching many by your example. I guess your best present is having your brother home safe in the United States of America. He is so proud of you… it shows in the pictures when he hugs you. Hope you have lots of fun being 11!! With love, Gretchen in Oregon
