Unlike most children, I did not have the priviledge of the customary upbringing with Mother/Father in the home, but I did get blessed enough to have a great set of Foster Parents for the first 2 memorable years of my life, that being age 4-6 yrs old. My Foster Mom, Mrs. Edwards was the best semtress in town, she made every girls wedding dress around Okla. City. I remember the house always had someone there being fitted for a dress while I kept myself busy with playing or coloring.
While knowing that I had a birthday coming up soon ( as I was reminded of this by my Foster Parents) I had no ideal that what happened on my Birthday was a surprise party and cake, as I had never had this before. ( I can not even remember a Birthday before my 5th Birthday) So boy was I surprised when I got a Birthday Cake with my name written on it. I can still remember the excitement I felt and the excitement in all the people's faces when I saw it. My Foster parents had over their family members, which was mostly old people but they were there for me and that was exciting to me. The cake itsself was a white cake with coconut all over the icing and there was red springels all over the top with my name written in red. So through the years I have tried to remember the way that cake looked and tasted, and even though it will never be as good as the one my Foster Mother, Mrs. Edwards made, I do beleive I have a close resemblence to it. And now I have received yet another surprise from my husband Kurt who threw me a 50th Birthday party with a cake and you guessed it...my name was on it too, along with some over the hill stuff too that I overlooked. Although I never shared this story before now, I'm sure he knew what that cake meant to me. I have been very Blessed to have a good Husband as well.

Thank God for foster parents who take that responsibility seriously.  I have several friends who have been foster parents, the great kind.   How wonderful that your husband remembered your special day with a cake.  Great story Bonnie.  Hope all your birthdays are great ones.
