1st Birthday!!!

Originally uploaded by ccswaringen.
On Sunday, we celebrated Javier's and Salomón's birthdays, complete with cakes, songs, and presents. Javier turned 11 years old and Salomón turned 14.

Javier only came to the Children's Home in April. He didn't even know when his birthday was, let alone ever celebrated it.

Caleb sat with Javier on the bus to church. Javier's face beamed the entire day as people wished him a happy birthday. He was so excited to tell Caleb that he was going to eat at McDonalds for his birthday....oh the simple and sweet things--it was beautiful!
