Matthew is my oldest son.
Laura and I were only 25, seems like forever ago but seems like yesterday.
Matthew was breech, Laura had toxemia, and Matthew was to be born a planned C-section. We later found out that Laura had Beta strep and that if Matthew had been born naturally, he would not have lived. We are very grateful he was healthy and happy.
It was a very cold day, we actually were having a blizzard.
It was an awesome experience being a new father. He was such a cute little guy and full of life. Blond hair, brown puppy dog eyes, and he had Laura and I wrapped around his little finger.
Matthew has grown up to be a man and is now living on his own.
We pray for Matthew and we know that God has big plans for him.
Happy Birthday and I love you.
