He is 6 years old!

He is such a blessing to me!
I was an only child for most of my life.
Every bedtime prayer, every birthday candle wish- was for a little brother or sister.
I always figured God had other plans. My parents divorced when I was 14. I seemed destined to ride this out solo.
Then I moved away for college. During my Christmas break freshman year my dad shares the news that he and his girlfriend were expecting!!
His estimated arrival was 8/22/2004. I was home for Summer break but heading back to college very soon. I waited and waited for his debut.
He waited until I was back at school, an ocean away, to make his appearance. I was able to meet him 3 months later during Thanksgiving break.
He has a love for Thomas the Tank Engine and his entourage, superheroes (especially Green Lantern, as of today), Transformers, and sweet surprises (ice cream, cookies, cake, etc...)
I thank God for answering my prayers and birthday wishes after all those years. Seriously, 10+ years of the same request. If there were any doubt that God answers prayers, I just remember this little guy and all the good times we have shared during his 6 years with us. I can't wait to see what else God has in store for this little guy!!!
Happy happy birthday little brother!!!
