Three days before his birthday, Billy posted, “You’re growing up so fast my child! Three days and you turn one. You have no idea the joy you bring to our family baby boy. I thank God every single day for my beautiful wife and for this little angel. Remember little man, Mommy and Daddy are always right here no matter what! We love you so so much.” He also ended the post by showing his appreciation to his wife, “I love you so much my gorgeous, sexy strong wife! Thank you for all the sacrifices and all the love you always give me.”

And on his actual birthday, Coleen posted, “Happy birthday, Amari! We will never stop covering you in prayers and showering you with love, our beautiful baby boy. There are a lot of scary and negative things still going on in the world, but you have been our sunshine and ray of hope. We celebrate your life today and every day! Even though you didn’t really get to go around, meet people, and explore much of the outside world during your first year, we still found all kinds of ways to enjoy and live our best life together. And our hearts are always full. One day, you’ll realize that there’s a whole world out there, but I hope these moments when it was just us will always stay in your very core. Be reminded that you are surrounded by people who love you, that you are appreciated, cherished and valued, and that all you really need is within reach. I look forward to watching you make all your dreams come true, and seeing the wonderful person you’ll become one day. But for now, you’re our little baby boy. And we will savor every minute of it.”

The doting father chimes in, “To my little man, Happy first birthday! You probably won’t remember this or just not pay any attention to our messages cause you’re still young. But I want you to know that no matter what the circumstances are, your mom and I will always lift you up when you’re down, comfort you when you’re uneasy, and love you until the world ends. My life changed when I married your mother, and our lives changed since God gave us a beautiful little angel. I love you my son, so much!”
