5 years ago we were preparing for the birth of a beautiful little boy.
And today we remember that it's been nearly 5 years since we held him in our arms.
On his 1st birthday, in 2009, we let go of a blue balloon. We told Oceana, who was only 2 1/2 that we were sending Joshua his birthday balloon. Every year we celebrated his birthday by letting go of a balloon. On his 4th birthday it was too dark to take a photo, as we waited until it was too late in the day. Every other year we documented the occasion with a quick photo.
This year, in celebration of a milestone birthday, I'd like to ask you all a favor.
Would you send Joshua a blue balloon? And would you send a photo of it to bouncingblossom AT gmail DOT com?
I'd love to put together a photo book of "Joshua's First Five Years". A history of his birthday celebrations and balloon releases, and a history of the siblings who joined his family.
Thank you all dear friends. Thank you for loving him with us.
