Jesse Benjamin

Jeremiah 1:5
"Before I formed you in the womb I knew you
Psalm 139:13
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mothers womb'

So this little guy is 6 today, I cant believe that he has been in our lives for  five and a half years. His life didn't start out too well, being born in the ladies cloak room in the city court house...BUT God had huge plans for Jesse. He was found and placed in a foster home where he was introduced to our daughter and son in law who went on to adopt Jesse as their son and brother to Joseph. Here he is this morning ready for school and carrying the new back pack that Grandma and Grandpa bought him.
We thank God daily for Jesse, we know God had his life planned out before he was even born and we are privileged that God chose our family for Jesse to be a part of.  

And if you have time hop on over to http://littlefingersandfrosting.blogspot.co.uk/ and get his mummy's post 


 

 This is one of the first photo's we saw of Jesse, just hours after they had brought him home. he was a very sad little chap, suffering from reflux and a skin condition
 But in no time, after much care from his new parents, Jesse changed to a happy little boy, reflux and skin cleared up
