    Beautiful, smiling pictures!!!

    And wow, him and Ryann were both born on the same date? Very cool.

    I’m glad his momsie has a beautiful, smiling, happy face! 🙂

    *Sigh* So much to say about it all and not the rights words to express it.

    Love ya, Jen!

    The last two are my favorite, can’t say much now because I’m all teary, …thank you for sharing something so personal and so beautiful with us, Jen. Funny how he favors both his moms.

  10. Susan Watson says:

    Oh, what a happy day! I can see how you all favor so much. I am so glad that they were willing to come see you guys. It’s encouraging to see the Lord work the way He does. I am so thankful for His salvation and how He’s worked in our lives.


  11. Wow, I came here via Emily. Wonderful, beautiful story. You were so brave.

  12. Jodi W says:

    Well, Jen, you know how much I like stating the obvious. I’d say you’ve had a pretty good month!

    I think the whole thing is just too cool. It looks like everything went very well and that he’s a very happy kid.

    What’s going to happen next? A reunion with the nurses in labor and delivery when you were born??

  13. Perri says:

    what a blessing! I’m so happy for you that you were able to have the opportunity to spend time with your son. Have a wonderful visit. Looks like it won’t be the only one 🙂

  14. Megan says:

    Oh Jen, that is so precious. I wish I could meet him! It looks like he took to you and his brothers and sisters very well. Isn’t great so many years later (as a transformed believer) to revisit a piece of your past and see how God was present even in those hard times. I see Him all around you.


  15. Melissa says:

    Yes, God has blessed you three-fold! I’m so glad your sister, your dad and now, your son are back in your life again. Aaron is such a handsome young man and appears very happy. Thanks for sharing this special moment with the rest of us!

  19. Susan says:

    Boy don’t you just have another handsome one. What an amazing story. I’m all choked up. Love the photos. They say it all, no words necessary. God Bless Jen.

    Oh girlfriend! WHAT words could POSSIBLY describe the wonderful, amazing, incredible reunion that took place?! Nah…those words don’t do it justice. What a day…what a reunion…what a fore-taste of heaven – where reunions abound w/no parting!

    You’ve had quite the family reunions this year!
    I’m so happy for you. What a blessing!

  42. Jennifer says:

    Isn’t it beautiful that God can redeem relationships like that? I am so glad you got to meet him. I was bawling like a baby reading this!


  43. Wow. I am *almost* speechless. (You know there is little that would truly take my words away though. ‘Specially since I’m typing. heh heh.)

    These are just awesome pics – I can feel everyone’s delight from the event just oozing right out of my laptop. (Wait, that sounded tacky. You know what I mean though!)

    I think my very mostest favoritest pic is the final one with the boys together. THAT is just delish. TOO COOL.

    Many hugs!!!!!

  44. Oh Jen, that is just truly a wonderful blessing. I am rejoicing with you!!


  45. Barbara says:

    So, when I first read this, I couldn’t see any of the pictures because of my internet filter. But when I read all the comments I thought “I can’t imagine that I would cry.” Now I’m on the laptop that has no filter…

    Let’s just say I was wrong. I could cry. How lovely lovely lovely.

    Well done, girl!
