Michael, you have been the JOY of our lives since the day you were born. Your strength as a first born, your heart of gold, your LOVE of life and your passion for Christ is a daily reminder of God’s incredible miracles!!!!!!! You can never do anything that will change our love for you….nothing!!!! We are yours forever!!!
You have made us so proud watching you soar this year in High School…you have exceeded all our expectations & more!!! You have taken personal responsibility of your academics, as well as your golf game!!! The thing that makes our hearts melt the most is your love for your sisters. I know it was a bumpy road for you the past 2 years preparing for the unknowns of adoption, but watching you become a man in Ethiopia and heart burst wide open for your Zoie has been an answer to prayer!!! God gave you an incredible gift for photography…thank you for blessing our lives with your talents!! We will never forget the moment you stood on the stage with your grandpa at JRA and spoke on Father’s Day. We were so proud….how did you do it? (8,000+ people attended!) We embrace your gifts, talents & passions in life!!!
We love you just the way you are from head to toe!
All our love, Mom & Dad
