17 years ago

This is my son Josh in whom I am well pleased. 17 years ago in Hagerstown Maryland, Joshua James Brown came into the world. We were thrilled that God gave us a son. My first gift for him was a pair of Adidas high-top sneaks. Josh gave us a scare, as he was born emergency c-section. He has grown into an incredible young man, who loves Jesus and loves others.

This summer in Thailand he stepped forward at a snake show and kissed a snake. WOW was that ever a brave thing to do. We all watched anxiously as he kissed the snake. This trip included him loving on our orphans in CAMBODIA and THAILAND.

Josh has always had a love for the game of basketball and worked hard at refining his skills. We have spent many hours watching him play and hooping it up together. I love watching him play ball. Here is an early shot when he was in 5th grade.

Needless to say he was cute baby. He was very chubby as a baby and loved to laugh. I recall him talking to himself many times in his crib early in the morning.

The sky is the limit for Josh. God has gifted him with a sharp mind and a tender heart for Jesus. I can't wait to see where God takes him. I am proud to call him my son. Happy Birthday SON, Your dad loves you!
