On This Day

On this day a husband and a wife became parents...On this day a family of 2 became a family of 3...On this day 4 parents became grandparents and brothers and sisters became aunts and uncles. On this day, nine years ago God blessed us with the birth of our firstborn, William Cooper McManic.

There have been many firsts that have followed since that day and we are so thrilled to have experienced all of them with you. God has grown you into quite the young man even in spite of your inadequate parents. You're a role model and you don't even know it. You are a role model to Jacob and Grey and a sweet nurturing protector to your little sister. They are so blessed to have you.

You have grown into a young man before our very eyes. Our tender hearted, sensitive, sports loving, outdoors craving, star wars watching, food devouring, daddy helping, mama loving, video game playing, school attending, flag football practicing, God following, 100% boy is nine years old today.

We are most proud of your decision in April of 2008 to ask Jesus into your heart and your desire to live for and follow Christ. We pray that through these difficult school years ahead of you that you will stand boldly on your faith in Christ that your morals and character will be an example to those around you and that you will continuously live a life that seeks God's own heart.

You are precious to us and we are over the moon crazy about you! Happy Birthday Cooper!!
