HAPPY BIRTHDAY, CHRISTOPHER!!!
In time honored tradition (okay, I’ve only done it with one sibling so far, but it will become a tradition), it’s time to dedicate a post to the birthday boy… my youngest brother, Christopher.
Christopher is 12 year old today. I can’t believe he’s already that old. I remember oh-so-clearly the first time I ever saw him laying in his little cradle, and he was oh-so-tiny… and precious… and beautiful. Time really does fly…
My family adopted Christopher when I was almost 17 years old. He was not even 1 week old. I can’t remember what it was like before he was around, and I had a good many years under my belt by the time he popped into our lives!
His best qualities are that he is compassionate, and is very good with preschool-aged children. The second is especially important since he is an uncle to 2 two-year olds, 2 one-year olds, and 2 babies!
In true “tween-age” standards, he can also be a little bit of a punk and annoyance, but these are traits that are temporary… and usually grown out of later on.
I am so very grateful that God chose us to be his family. I can’t imagine what our lives would be like if he wasn’t around. Maybe a little less hectic, but also much less entertaining!
So, HAPPY BIRTHDAY, CHRISTOPHER!!! I hope you have a great day.
