Growing Up!

Our third boy was a precious addition to our family.
What you see in the photos below pretty much sums up Fraser's personality.
He is joyful and easy to please.

We called him our "Jolly Giant" when he was a baby.
He was our largest baby ~ at 9lbs 4oz.
He was usually happy...

Eleven years ago today Fraser was placed in our
home by our Loving Heavenly Father.
Our third son.

A treasure.

What would we do without you Fraser?
How precious it is that you are in our family.
It would not be the same without you!

We all love you very much.

We pray that the LORD would early have your heart
and that you would all your days serve and honour HIM!
Follow the LORD Jesus FIRST and we will be the happiest of parents!
Whatever HE desires for you is our desire too.
Follow HIM wherever HE leads!

"Let no man despise thy youth;
but be thou an example of the believers,
in word, in conversation,
in charity, in spirit,
in faith, in purity."
I Timothy 4:12


All our love,
Daddy and Mummy
