John's Birthday
on Your Date
Your Time
Your Place
I learned to laugh and crawl,
then sit and stand
And I can walk now
if you hold my hand
But the fun has just begun
Look out world, I'm turning ONE!!!
Our little Sarah is turning one
Please come and join in on the fun
We're having lunch, cake and music too
We can't wait to see all of you
Oh my goodness, how can this be?
Carol-Ann is turning Three! 
About my birthday...
there have been few
But just this year
I'm turning TWO!
A breath, a cry, a life brand new,
In a single moment
our dreams have come true.
A Miracle has come to be
With this addition to our family tree
We pictured this face,
Forever - it seems,
This time reality,
Has exceeded our dreams.
I pictured an angel,
When I prayed for you,
I know I was heard,
My dreams have come true.
The angels caught my teardrop,
And heard our constant prayer,
They have delivered you, a miracle,
Into our loving care.
If there weren’t enough angels in heaven above. The lord sent one to Earth to bless me with love
Find a pretty flower and dress it up with curls, fill its petals with a love for life, and you’ve got a little girl The angels above sounded their trumpets with joy.  Heaven has sent us a new baby boy And while they slept, the angel came down and recorded all likenesses of both parents, careful to combine these into a wonderful mix for their baby
Every so often, the stork’s ability is tested to see if he can carry twice the weight. We have Twins! Take the love of the parents and sprinkle with heavenly spice, mold into a unique creation, only after the angels have stirred twice. Adoptions are a special time when a child sent from above. Where God chose one to give life and another to raise with love!
Bottles, bibs, blankets and booties. Diapers, late night and parental duties. It’s almost time for the glorious hour. Come celebrate with us at _____ baby shower! Here we go again. Left without a clue.
What color will it be for baby number two?
Please help us celebrate the anticipated arrival
of the newest member of the _____ family.
The Lord picks special parents.
They are chosen from above.
For adoptions take two giving hearts.
Filled with special lasting love.
Jump ropes, swings and teddy bears.
Pretty ribbons for her hair,
Giggles, hugs and love to share
~oh the joy a daughter!
Our hearts are filled with happiness,
our lives are filled with love.
We have the baby boy
we have been dreaming of.
I did not give you the gift of life...
Life has given me the gift of you.
I learned to laugh and crawl,
then sit and stand
And I can walk now
if you hold my hand
Learning more each day with you
So look out world, I'm turning TWO!!!
Ice cream and cake, what fun it will be...
Our little boy/girl is turning Three!
It's as simple as A-B-C
A birthday's more fun
if you share it with me!
We can't believe how time flies
She's growing up before our eyes!
Please join us as we celebrate
