In March of 2015 when we announced the launch of Starfish Infertility Foundation (Starfish Infertility Foundation – A Dream Finally Realized ) I wasn’t exactly sure what I was doing or how I was going to do it! So unfamiliar in the territory of non profits that I actually announced the launch before I had received my 501c3. Why? Because why WOULDN’T I receive it?!?!? Haha! That IRS machine can be a fickle little beast! Long story short, we received our official letter in October of 2015 and gave our 1st grant short thereafter to Casey and Tracey Hightower. (Meet Tracey and Casey Hightower)
News followed of Tracey’s pregnancy and by October we were all anxiously awaiting the arrival of this little miracle boy Duncan. (Our First Starfish Baby!)
And then…..then he was here! This gorgeous little hunk of chunk that put a face to why I was doing what I was doing. Believe it or not, this little boy finally showed me why I went through the years of struggle to conceive. It was for him, and hopefully so many more after him!
Duncan’s mommy and daddy have been SO wonderful to me since this little boy arrived! I was able to be there for his very first bath (Sweet Baby Duncan gets his First Bath) and I have absolutely LOVED watching this little guy (and all of his personality) grow!
So here we are…. a year later. How is that possible?!?!?
Nothing calls for a celebration like a one-year photo shoot! So we did it right!!
Of course there was cake…..Duncan had NO problem digging in and enjoying it!
And what’s better to clean up a boy covered in cake and whipped cream??? A bath of course!!
Happy Birthday little man! You are so very loved by so many people, and I am happy and humbled to be one of them!!
