Happy Birthday Tanner

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11

Regardless of what obstacles life puts in front of us, Gods plan is bigger! When Tanner was around 3 years old he was officially diagnosed with Autism. At that point we didn’t know what the future held for Tanner. He still didn’t speak a word and struggled to adapt socially.

But God has big plans for Tanner, and regardless of what the world was going to label him, he was going to overcome and succeed. It’s been an amazing journey these past 8 years, Tanner ended up teaching me a lot about life and purpose. I truly believe he was one of the main reasons that brought me close to God.

Today Tanner is thriving in school, in his music, and on the swim team. Tanner is the kindest soul you will ever meet, a very soulful person who has compassion for everyone. His smile is contagious and lights up the world. I feel honored and privileged to be his Father and I thank God every day.  So Happy 8th Birthday Tanner , to my beloved Son, may God continue to guide your path Amen!
