Birthday Bonanza

Last Friday we celebrated our August birthdays in the preschool room. The foster home halls echoed as those little voices sang “Happy Birthday” six times for our August babies! With some kids singing in Chinese and some in English, we had a beautiful New Day choir going. Each birthday boy and girl got a chance to blow out their own candles on the giant birthday cake.

These kids went crazy over the cake! In preschool, we usually stick to healthy snacks like peaches and rice crackers. But we thought that this was an occasion to let the kids splurge a bit. With plenty of cake to go around, these little mouths were as happy as can be. Here's Robert with a mouthful of cake that was just too cute to miss.

Anton officially became 1-year-old on August 19th but couldn’t make it to the party because of an illness. Because of his cleft lip and palate, he has been having an especially difficult time eating. We made sure to visit him at the healing home on this special day.


  1. Aw Anton!!! I miss my little boy so much

  2. So cute! Happy birthday to all! I have featured Serena on my blog before! I pray she finds a family!

  3. I have no idea how I missed this post! What darlings!
