The Year of the Boy
What was different in your life this past year? For me, 2010 was this: only one thing changed but that changed everything.
You know what I mean?
2010 was the year Ephraim joined our family. We picked him up in Ethiopia on February 1st. That’s it. That’s really the only big thing that happened.
But you know what followed that?
No sleep for 9 months.
An incredible amount of love.
Laughter up the wazoo.
The inability to leave the house very often at all without a baby and cereal.
Giving away our dogs because that just wasn’t happening.
Toys all over the floor every single day.
The best kind of cuddles.
I could go on and on.
The boy changed it all. And, I will always thank God for that boy. That exact boy.
