Tyton just a couple minutes old

Tyton before we came home

Tyton's four year old pics

It's hard to believe that my baby is four today. I waited a long time for him and he has been such a blessing in my life. I didn't think that I was going to be able to have anymore babies come to my home but a wise Heavenly Father (who knows all) had something else in store for me. At times I questioned why and I didn't understand but now that time has passed I have learned a few things. Our Heavenly Father is in control and is involved in the smallest details of our lives. His time schedule differs from ours and we think we know what is best but he truly knows!! It is so plain to see, it just took me awhile. Nate needed to join our family first and if we would have had Tyton we wouldn't have pursued foster care and Nate wouldn't be a part of our Eternal Family. When we found out that we could adopt Nathaniel, the very next day I found out I was pregnant, it had been 7 1/2 years since my last pregnancy. Heavenly Father was in control, I just need to get out of his way and stop being the obstacle. I have been so BLESSED!!

Tyton - I love you!
You were sooo wanted!!!
Thank you for patiently waiting to join our family!!
You make me laugh!!
You are such a good boy!

Can't believe he is already four. It feels like yesterday that I got to witness the miracle of you bringing him into this world. It still brings tears to my eyes just replaying the memory in my mind. He is such a sweet boy and I am SO glad God is in control, cause serisouly, what would we do without Tyton & Nate?!!

Hi this is Ross Hunt's wife, I hope you don't mind me posting a comment....but you are absolutly right, Our Heavenly Father controls all, we have been trying for 4 years to have a baby, but I always have to remember how much Heavenly Father controls our life and when he knows we are ready something will work out!! Maybe we need to tell that to Ross -k-. HEHE

I can't believe he is 4 either! Azure was working at the motel when you found out you were pregnant. Kinda crazy!
