On July 19, 2007 a sweet little boy was born. I can’t believe this little boy turns five today and is starting Kindergarten in another month. I remember bringing Lucas home for the first time and how much he smiled, constantly. He is our happy little boy, so sweet, so kind, so gentle and such a wonderful brother and son.
I remember the night he was born. We were so excited to meet him. It was the first (and only) time I got to hold my baby right after he was born. Since Lilliana was a preemie and I had an emergency c-section, I was only able to meet her the next day. After Julian was born, he was brought to the NICU right away too so I only held him hours later. When Lucas was born, I remember them handing him right over to Michael and me touching his little fingers. They even let me hold him on my chest, while they wheeled me out of the surgery room. It was one of the best days of my life and such a blessing to have him with me right after the moment he was born. I can’t express to you how much that meant to me and how much I prayed for that same blessing when Julian was born.
Lucas has taught us so much about life, even with all the pain that we have suffered over the last year, he continues to smile and show us love. Wishing him a wonderful birthday today, filled with lots of happy memories.
