Could you hear me squeal when I opened my inbox and found an email from Ann of Red Thread China at 11:00 p.m. Monday? She wanted to surprise me and let me know that not only did she have photos of Luke for us enjoying his birthday cake that we arranged for him through her, but that he got it on his actual birthday in his foster family's home!
And just look at that cake! Isn't it gorgeous? We all agreed here that we want a cake like that. It looks to have candy and fruit on top. I'm not sure what's in the pink tulip bowl, but I think it might have been ice cream inside it that was part of the decoration on top! Joy said she wants a cake like that when we go to China!
Those of you that stopped by and prayed when you read the previous post, THANK YOU! I appreciate those prayers so much! I appreciate Ann of Red Thread and I am thankful for the director of the orphanage that Luke is from for seeing that he received his cake on his birthday! I know she went the extra mile to do that!
These pictures put a huge smile on my face, to put it mildly! It's obvious to see that he is a very happy little boy; that he's well taken care of; that his foster family loves him very much; and that he loves to eat cake! (I think he loves to eat, period.)!
Ann also told us that his foster family are very nice people and that they love him very much! I knew it in my heart already, but to read that does this mama's heart a heap of good! :)
I can just about bet that he was taking care of some left over cake or icing off his arm in this pic! I love it....love those eyes!
And doesn't that look like a Burger King crown? They sure gave him a special day for his 2nd birthday and I'm beyond happy! :)
