Today is a very special day at our house. Henry turned 22 today. He is our oldest son, a graphic design major in college, an amazing artist, an all around nice guy, a great son, and a fun brother.

Something special happened back in October 1999. We were suppose to bring Lily home and of course told everyone. Well we were shattered when we found out that Lily had an infection and wouldn't be coming home. So the next go round we didn't tell anyone. It turned out that they released Lily on the day of Henry's birthday party! We had planned it for a while and invited several young teenage boys over. The party would not be cancelled. So when Henry came home with all these boys they were greeted by large signs and balloons in the yard saying "Happy Birthday Henry!" and "Lily's Home!" Henry was thrilled.
