Every birthday until this one, his 22nd, has revolved around his attachment to our family.
His first family.
Our family's stories.
This year, he begins his own family.
His own stories.
His own book.
He and Katie are a family of two.
In the future, God willing, they will add children to their family.
I am so grateful and blessed that they are willing to intertwine their new stories with our old ones.
They celebrated Preston's birthday on Friday, but on Saturday they celebrated again with us.
We got him a couple tires for his Jeep. Actually, we wrote a check for a couple tires for his Jeep.
I remember when Eric and I were just starting our life together, our stories, our book.
We got practical presents like tires from our first families.
I'm so proud of the man he's become. I'm looking forward to watching his new 'book' unfold and share in chapters added.
I pray blessings on him for guidance, prosperity, patience, clarity of thought and choice, and happiness above all else.
