She's 13!

We have another teenager in the house!

Our sweet Miss Ester has a gentle "old"  soul.   She's a natural-born mother who is very sensitive toward the feelings of others.


She can be quiet, but her thoughts speak volumes.  She loves to write and has a passion for horse riding.

(She received her first "real" cowgirl belt.  Woo Hoo!)


I was recalling her bumpy birth story this morning:

Ester was born with a heart defect that required open heart surgery, and I hemorrhaged after birth (requiring 2 pints of blood to feel a bit fresher :)  Once we all found our groove, David and I realized what a strong and courageous soul Miss Ester was graced with.

*****************************

You know what is REALLY awesome???

Ester's birthday lands on the feast day of St. John of God!

Who is St. John of God?

The patron saint of heart patients!!

A God-incident, we like to think :)

*******************************

Happy birthday to you Miss Ester!  We love you and thank God for putting you into our care.  May God bless you abundantly through the year!

Love,

Dad & Mom

  2. Hope Ester enjoyed her special day! Many happy returns! Our "baby" Samuel has DS and had a big open heart op at 5 months. It is so amazing what modern medicine can do. And what a lovely feast day for your birth. A good day to pray for heart surgeons!
