December 18, 1986......i remember it just like it was yesterday. i can't believe its been 24 yrs.

That day started out like any other day, but by mid morning, it was a day like no other. i was at work when i got the call.  On the other end of the line, after saying hello, i heard this, "kim, its r.s., did i catch you at a bad time??,"........i say,"nnnnno"(as my heart is about to beat out of my chest!) and then i hear those words.....those sweet, long awaited words......."well, we have a precious little boy for you all!"......OMGosh!!!! i just start bawling and running down the school halls telling everyone i saw! "We have a little boy, we have a little boy!!!!"   Wow,.....how was that for an early Christmas present!!!  See what you think........
Casey Joseph 10-10-86
MY SON 12-18-86
Not flesh of my flesh
nor bone of my bone
but nevertheless,
still MY OWN
Never forget for a single
minute you weren't born
under my heart but in it.

Lord, thank you for the one that chose the option of ADOPTION  and thank you for allowing me to raise this boy who has grown into a wonderful young man. i love you casey joe. Merry Christmas!

  1. Oh yes, what a glorious day...........Kime do you remember you & I going to Wichita to purchase that precious baby boy some new clothes & the nice lady at McClurkans, she was excited for you. Casey has been such a blessing to many, many people. Big Guy loves him so much, I do too, but Big Guy loves him like his own son !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
