If a picture paints a thousand words, then this picture should say loud and clear how happy Samuel is to finally be free of his braces!!  After two years of the torture devices, he is finally FREE!  You have never seen a young man so happy in his life.  He was counting down the days….. five more days, four more days, three….two…. one!

We just wanted to share this joyful milestone with family and friends and let them see the awesome smile of an incredible young man of God.  We are so proud of the man he is becoming as we watch him grow and mature.  God has called him and chosen him and he is well aware of that fact.  He is a warrior with a heart for God.  In just a few short weeks he turns 16 years old.  Time sure flies when you’re having fun.

We love you Sam and are so proud of you son… and we love that new smile of yours!
