I can't think of a more appropriate way to celebrate such a special boy than with a big ol' celebration of LOVE, surrounded by our closest family and his dearest friends.
It really was magical to have everyone together in our home. Friends who are with us on this crazy journey - some new, and some who have been there from the very beginning, all brought together by our love for one little boy. I couldn't help but stop and realize how important these people are to us. It was an honour to celebrate with all of you. We are so thankful to have you in Brennen's life.
It was such a joy to watch him take in all of the excitement of the day. The balloons, the cake, the music. Sounds of laughter and love and parents and kids, and knowing that it was all in celebration of him. I struggled to keep it together, when I wanted to cry tears of joy and pride watching his eyes light up, seeing his big bright smile, and knowing that we were celebrating not only the joy that we are able to bring to him, but the incredible amount of joy that he brings to all of us.
Here are some photos from Brennen's 10th birthday party.
Truly, we are blessed.
