1st Birthday Cookies For A Special Boy

This weekend I made a special set of cookies for a first birthday party.  It was fun to play with “boy” colors, because with two little girls in my house I’m used to making lots of pink and purple cookies! =)
Here is the sweet birthday boy Luke,  happily munching on a cookie…
This set of cookies was extra special to me because this little boy is a bit of a miracle.  Luke’s mommy (my friend) found out she was pregnant and found out she had aggressive breast cancer on the same day.  Doctors told her that in order to save her own life, cancer treatment needed to start immediately and could not wait for a pregnancy.  She was highly advised to abort her pregnancy, since the harsh drugs needed for her cancer treatment would surely affect the baby’s mental and physical development, cause premature birth, or a miscarriage.  She didn’t take that advise.  She reached out to family and friends to cover her sweet baby with prayers, and her prayers were answered.  To the astonishment of many doctors, baby Luke was not adversely affected by the drugs in any way!  He is healthy, beautiful, and perfect! 
Happy birthday sweet Luke!
(Oh, let’s not forget Luke’s mommy… who is also now healthy and cancer free!)
