Happy 4th Birthday Kolton Lane

Four Years Ago (yesterday, yes I know I am late with post but we were busy.)God chose me to be the mother of a beautiful handsome Baby boy! He changed my life forever, in just a matter of hours. I was 24 years old and newly single. I really had no idea what I wanted to do with my life, I was just having fun. On January 20, 2009 I got a call from a close friend's mother. That call forever changed my world and how I saw things.

Kolton's biological "mother" had tested positive for Meth during delivery, as well as Kolton. CPS immediately removed him from her care and he was sent home from the hospital a healthy thriving little boy. His Grandmother was named his primary caregiver for the time being, along with his 3 year old big brother, Cam. His Granny, as we call her, quickly realized she was unable to care for a newborn & a 3 year old. That's where I came in. After a quick phone call Granny was on her way to my house to discuss some things. I had no idea things were about to change forever.

After a lot of discussion with Granny, talks with My mom & sisters, and a lot of praying I decided I would become Kolton's primary caregiver. In a matter of minutes, I can became a mother to a 3 week old little boy. In a few short hours and a lot of help from Family & Friends. My little man had a complete nursery and closet full of clothes.

I truly believe God Chose Me to be his Mother and I am forever grateful for the confidence he had in me. I am more blessed than I could have ever imagined.

To My Amazing, Handsome, Often Stubborn Son,
As we get ready to Celebrate your 4th Birthday with Friends and Family on Saturday, I look back on the last 4 years and how you have made my life complete. I amazed Daily as you grow and continue to learn. I love how curious about life you are. I love that you are a Great Big Brother and that you are always Protecting & loving your sister, when you aren't driving her crazy. I love that you remember to say "Please and Thank you" most of the time. I love your imagination and that you love Trucks. You stole my heart from the moment I held you in my arms. I look forward to all the milestones you have ahead of you. I'll always be right there to hold your hand when are scared, kiss your boo-boo's when you get hurt and give you a little shove when you are nervous. Most of all I will love you with everything I have for as long as I live! Happy 4th Birthday Kolton Lane!
