The past few days have been a whirlwind of celebrations as both Gloria and Saul had birthdays this past week. This was the first birthday Gloria has ever celebrated in our home. The first of many. I don’t talk about her on here as much as I do the other kids, since she is a bit older and I want to respect her need for privacy. We are very thankful to have Gloria as part of our family. She is a gem. Very sweet, compassionate, hard-working, responsible, and fun to be around. Not to mention gorgeous!I am so proud of her, she is growing into a beautiful young women who loves Jesus. We are honoured that we get to be her parents.

A friend recently asked me how long our commitment to her is for and I quickly answered “forever”. She’s not just using a room in our house, she is our daughter and we love her so much! Happy Birthday Gowia (as Brielle says)!

So what do you think?
  1. Feliz cumpleaños Gloria! que Dios te bendiga muchisimo! Que alegre se mira tu fiesta y que riquissimo se mira el pastel (la torta?) muchas felicidades!!!

    Amber, you have no idea how excited I was when I heard Gloria was going to live with you guys. It means the world to know that she has somewhere to call home and doesn’t have to face the world and adulthood on her own as so many others do. Bendiciones Gloria! Hoy y siempre!

  3. I love that FAMILY and love extends beyond blood, courts or paperwork! She is your forever daughter in every way that actually matters. Happy Birthday Gloria…we’re looking forward to getting to know you better next month!
