Judah's 1 year old!!

Well, we made it friends. My baby boy is 1 year old. We celebrated with his birth mama and some licks of frosting. It was a blessed day.

It's no coincidence that Judah's birthday falls on 9/23. Soon after we brought him home, God showed me Mark 9:23 and reminded me that He can do all things.

“What do you mean, ‘If I can’?” Jesus asked. “Anything is possible if a person believes.”

Today, we rejoice that we have had a year with this precious boy. We thank God that his birth mom did not abort him, even though she was encouraged to because of his hydranencephaly diagnosis. We praise God that Judah's life has been protected from shunt malfunctions, illness and fire. We thank God for the wisdom He has given us to make his life as comfortable as possible. We thank God that he is our son. Happy birthday Judah William Pedigo! We wouldn't trade this year with you for anything.

“I knew when I met you an adventure was going to happen. If ever there is tomorrow when we're not together... there is something you must always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. But the most important thing is, even if we're apart... I'll always be with you.”

― A.A. Milne

Here is a small sample of my favorite pictures from Judah's first year. Praise Jesus with me for allowing us to be a part of something so special and miraculous by showing the world that every life has a purpose!
