Finley is 5

 

Five years ago today Finley was born, it feels like just yesterday with his tiny head of hair. We love him so much and when we think about him, in his life he has shared his home with children from around the world, Russia, Ukraine, The Philippines, Ethiopia and Mexico. Children with so many different stories and medical needs and through it all he has shown such grace and kindness. My favorite quote from him recently is: “Sadness is braver than anger.”

We are so thankful to have been blessed with this boy. It was this day 5 years ago that made us realize how much we love parenting. And I think when we held him for the first time those 5 years ago is what made our hearts break for anyone as cute and sweet as this to be abandoned. He sparked a lot of love that day, just by being himself.

Kids and bikes and adults. Double celebration of a 5 year old boy and a turkey. Candles on a pie and flying past the ocean as the sun sets golden. Magic
