Dear Dylan, Today is your birthday. Two years ago, God blessed us with you. You were a nine pound little bruiser born not looking like either of us with your blond hair and blue eyes! We loved you the moment mommy knew she was pregnant and when the nurse placed you in our arms that love deepened. We knew that you were truly a gift from God and made a promise to Him that we would raise you according to His word. We would teach you to love Him and to have your own relationship with Him. The bible says to "train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it." It is God's promise to us. You have brought joy and happiness into our lives (along with some other feelings when you are being bad!)
We enjoy watching you grow and learn new things. This has been a learning experience for us as well as you.
We love you so much and pray you see many more birthdays!
