Not only was it Nikolas, 11th Gotcha day this week but its also his 12th birthday today!! God blessed us so much when we adopted Nikolas that we were able to spend his first birthday with him in Russia!! We also spent our first Christmas together as a family in Russia!! I remember it so vividly!! We had no hot water, no electricity, but we were a family!!
Nikolas, you were our first child. You were born in our hearts and we love you so much!! What a treasure you are to us!! You have a heart of gold and I cannot wait to see where God does with your life!! Happy Birthday, sweetheart!!!
