Special Day






Today is a special day for our family. First it was Drew's dedication day at church. What a great feeling to stand before our church family and dedicate our son to the Lord. We have been through 2 long adoption journeys and our church has played such an important part of both. Our friends have prayed with us, cried with us, celebrated with us, held us up when we didn't think we could go on and most of all loved us. We feel very humbled that God chose us to be the parents of two amazing little boys and we pray that we will honor God as they grow to become young men.
Also...today is a special day in Ian's life. Three years ago today, we saw Ian's sweet little face for the first time. He is becoming such a little boy...not a baby (most of the time) anymore. He's smart, funny, sweet, frustrating and kind. We love this little guy so, so much.
Trying to get Drew down for a nap now and Ian is insisting on talking...loudly. So, I'm going to go "talk" to Ian. More later :)

Love the pics! I know it was a wonderful day! Do the Dillons go to First Baptist Church too? I know they are involved in the CBF as is my church? Just wondering.

Two such special days for two special boys! Congrats!
BTW, you have great taste... I had my aoi di made of 2 very similar fabrics, and we bought the same one for our Parker that Drew is wearing =).
