Happy Heavenly Birthday Caleb

Happy Birthday Caleb 2015 11 years ago this very day I gave birth to a healthy baby boy.  It was such a joyful day for Rob and I as we welcomed our first and only son to the world.  Caleb Robert Whan made us a family for the first time and we couldn’t have been happier. I remember holding Caleb for the first time looking into his beautiful blue eyes and telling him how happy I was to be his mother.  He brought such joy to us, his love, smiles, and laughter were a little glimpses of heaven on earth.
