We were so happy to be able to celebrate Ephraim with his 4th Birthday! It’s so crazy to think that he is now 4 years old and just starting Pre-school for 4 year olds. Here is a reflection that Kim recently posted to Social Media reflecting on Ephraim’s birth:
This day, 4 years ago, we went to a normal OB check up not expecting to have a baby at the end of the day. Ephraim Benjamin was literally prayed over in to this world and every day since then God has revealed himself through Ephraim’s life. We are SO thankful for this miracle that God gave us 4 years ago. It was one of the scariest and most joyful days we have had. During the normal check up, there were complications found and I was sent to be checked more thoroughly. During this exam, there was about a 5 minute period where there was not a heart beat to be found. Just a little bit later we were in the OR and he was born, needed a little oxygen, was 3 weeks early and super little, but perfect. We found out a couple of weeks later that right at that time where there was no heartbeat, some of our prayer warriors were praying specifically for our family, not because they knew what was happening, but because they felt God putting us on their heart to pray. We know Ephraim is here because of that and we KNOW prayer works, Ephraim is evidence. SO, Happy 4th birthday big guy! We love you so much and are blessed to be your parents!
We were able to celebrate his birthday in style by taking the kids to one of their favorite hangouts “Mr. Joy” where Ephraim got to dress up like a fireman and then celebrating with cake and presents in the house. His cake was from his favorite show “Paw Patrol.” Ephraim was also able to celebrate his birthday with his class as his birthday fell on the first day of class.
