Happy Birthday, Austin!

Austin and his parents, Vince and Jera, are members of our church family here in Dallas. Vince and Jera are a wonderful young couple who prayed for many years to have a child. When the opportunity to adopt in Russia was presented , they worked and saved for several years so they could travel to an orphanage thousands of miles away and bring little Austin back.
We,at our congregation , eagerly watched from home as Jera blogged from Russian for three weeks and showed us pictures of the little blonde haired toddler who had quickly stolen their hearts.
That was over three years ago and it has been such a pleasure to watch little Austin as he begins to grow " in wisdom and in stature and in favor with God and man". May you have many more happy birthdays, Austin!
