We can't imagine our lives without you...


It was one year ago today that you graced us with your life! I will never forget the day your mama told me she was expecting you. This was such joyous news and we eagerly anticipated your arrival. For the next 9 months we dreamed about you. We dreamed about what you would look like. We seemed to know from the very beginning that you would be a boy who would become a man's man like your daddy....and we called you "Little Olive" in reference to Psalm 128:3, "Your wife will be like a fruitful vine within your house; your sons will be like olive shoots around your table."

Upon learning you were going to be River Caiden we have dreamed and prayed very specific prayers for you. That you would not only know of this Man Jesus that your parents speak of to you--that you would know Him and love Him with every ounce of your being. We pray and believe that you are going to be a very God fearing man that Jesus uses "For His Kingdom Come."

We love you River Caiden. We love you with all that we have. We love being a part of your life. We love seeing you grow. We love seeing all your "firsts." You are an amazing young boy already. We see strength in you. We see characteristics already that God is going to use in a mighty, mighty way.

We can't wait to celebrate with you this Saturday!

Happy First Birthday River!

Uncle Robert & Aunt Kristin
