Happy 4th Birthday Edric!…(Only a month late)…

Well actually he turned 7 about a month ago, so I’m a little behind but doing what I can. I can’t believe it was 7 years ago that this sweet little boy made his way into our lives and our hearts. He has been a blessing from day 1 and continues to be. Leighton you…
