Owen Reed's 1 yrs old!

It's hard to believe that just a year ago today I gave birth to one of God's most amazing little boys, and gave a new hope/love/faith to a family that so desperately wanted a child of their own. Owen Reed Tucker was born on 06/25/09 @ Memorial city Hospital here in Houston, TX.

From the first moment I found out I was pregnant, until the day he was finally born I would pray hard and daily for God to give me strength and courage to do what was right for my unborn child. God could not of answered our prayers better than by delivering us to Kim and Troy. I remember the first time we met them, at the Chuy's by our house-I was about 6 1/2 months pregnant at the time and was so nervous- what would they be like? What would they think of me? So many questions swirled around my head that day- but from the moment we walked up to the table seeing their smiling faces and feeling their sweet warm embraces, we knew God had perfectly hand picked them for us.

And now, an entire year has passed (so FAST) and every time I look at this little boy my heart races...he is so handsome, so smart and so so very loved! I never doubt my tough decision to place him, and I will never declare that I "gave him up" he is and forever will be my son-by-birth...a brother to John-Mark and Bailee...and the most precious/unselfish part of me. Owen...I love you, Happy birthday!!
