Happy 5th Birthday Caleb!

I can't believe the round face toddling tiny thing we brought home from Ethiopia is now a lean, mean, high fiving machine.

He's precious and crazy and got moves this white girl can't dream of doing.  He loves his family, he loves tv, he loves preschool.
He struggles with his letters, we work til the cows come home and he still can't spell his name, but he knows every word to every song, except his name song, that we sing and listen to.
He loves to cuddle, FINALLY THANK YOU JESUS!
He loves to flirt.  He loves to make people laugh.  He loves to prank.
We love you Caleb Wesley Dereje Root and are so thankful God chose you out of all the precious chocolate boys in the world to be our son.

  1. Hi Caleb!
    My name is Jenna, You are a handsome prince. You are a special miracle from god, a gift from above, an earthly angel.

    I was born with a rare life threatening disease, and have 14 other medical conditions, and developmental delays.

    I wrote this poem

    Each of us are Special

    Each of us different,

    No one is the same

    Each of are us are unique in our own way,

    Those of us who have challenges, we smile through our day.

    It doesen't matter what other's say

    we are special anyway.

    What is forty feet and sings? the school chior
