Dear Baby Tupou,
Today is your 1st birthday, Happy Birthday!
In the one year you have been alive, you have done more for our baby yearning hearts than you will ever know.
I still remember the moment I knew you and I were going to be kindred spirits! It was a simple moment, not one that many would recognize as being life changing, but for me, it was special.
It was during a musical we were watching that Big Tupou was performing in. We were hanging out during the intermission, and I asked your Mom if I could hold you, and the second I held you in my arms and you looked at me with the biggest smile and I knew right then and there you and I were going to be kindred spirits.
We are so thankful to your parents for giving us opportunities and time to take you with us go to play, swim and even go camping! We’ve had so much fun traveling with you and your family to Louisiana, family reunions, and California including DISNEYLAND!
Time spent with you has been healing for our hearts that yearn to be parents every day. We want so badly to be parents, and when we spend time with you, just the three of us, we get a small glimpse at how excited we are to have our own little family one day.
Your pure excitement you show when we put you in your car seat to go out with us is our favorite thing to see.
Watching your little body burst with joy when we take you swimming and falling asleep on the way home to your parents after a busy day of playing with us melts our hearts every time.
Thank you for loving us, cause we sure do love you!
We look forward to watching you grow and learn! But please stay little a little longer 🙂
Tell your parents you need to come to St. George so we can go play some more!!… Your parents and sisters can come too….I know your Mom would love a weekend getaway in sunny St. George!
We love you Tupou! Happy Birthday!
