Happy Birthday!

Today, our son turns four. I knew that we wouldn't have him home by his birthday, but I had hoped that we would be there in that EE country to celebrate with him. To bring him a special treat, presents. To hold him and tell him that he is loved, SO very much! To reassure him that from this birthday forward, there will always be a family who cares about him and thinks that the day he was born is reason to rejoice.
My heart is aching today because I can't be there with my sweet boy. I wonder if he knows it is his birthday, if there is anything done to recognize the day, to celebrate HIM!
Soon if all goes as we hope/pray, Matthew WILL be home and what a day of rejoicing that will be! I'm thinking that a belated birthday party may be in order for our little guy. A day just for him - with birthday cake, ice cream, toy cars/trucks, family, friends!
But for today, I will wish him Happy Birthday in my heart and send wishes on angels' wings - hoping that somehow he feels them and "knows" that his forever family is coming for him as soon as we possibly can.
