The first year of any child's life is an adventure not only for them but for their Mama's, too. And this little guy was no exception. In his first year of life, Joshua's parents started a rigorous MBA program at Brigham Young University, moved half way across the country, and tried to create a life in a place neither had been before. To say he's born into a strong family is an understatement.
Not only did his Mama work her tail off to create a new home, she battled postpartum depression in a place where she didn't have friends or family to call on. So what did she do? She formed a new village. She fought, she laughed, she cried, but most of all, she gave this little guy a wonderful first year of life.
Happy First Birthday, little Joshua! Knowing where you come from, I have no doubt that you'll grow to be a strong, kind, fireball of a human. You're blessed to have such grit in your blood. And I'm sure somewhere down the road, you'll develop a love for cake and frosting.
