Happy 3rd B-Day, Kiefer Thomas!

Kiefer Thomas Patterson
Born in Thomas, Haiti, May 20, 2008
Adopted into Patterson Family April 3, 2010
Happy 3rd Birthday, "Kowboy Kiefer"!

Kiefer, I don't know if we can ever adequately express what a blessing you are to our family.  God delivered you to us just two weeks before your big sissie, Chrissie, had open-heart surgery.  We felt God's timing was less than perfect, but only God knew how truly perfect His plan and timing was.

Kiefer climbed the entire mountain all the way up, and all the way down, never being carried once!

You are such a "kool kid", Kowboy Kiefer, and you bring so much joy to our family.  You are all boy, all "kowboy", Kiefer, and you are so very talented.  I've never met a 2-year-old who could rope anything he sets his mind to, who beats kids in dummy roping competitions in the age 6 and under category!  I've never met a 2-year-old who could hike a mountain, all the way up and all the way down, without help.  I've never met a 2-year-old who has your strength, your determination, your talent.  You are not only a survivor of the Haitian earthquake, you are KOWBOY KIEFER, a talented boy who is treasured and loved by his Texas family.  I can't wait to see God's plan for your life, as I know He's got something incredible planned for you, Kowboy Kiefer.  Looking forward to watching you grow and learn and shock us all with your Kowboy Kiefer talent in your 3rd year of life.

We are beyond grateful that God chose to bless our family with the gift of YOU, Kowboy Kiefer.   Happy 3rd Birthday!  WE LOVE YOU!
