Brice Taylor’s Birthday Message to Daddy Stoner
When my children were growing up, I often prayed that Father God would let us live near our children and grandchildren so we could enjoy the fruit of our labors. However, he, in his infinite wisdom, had other plans. At most we are able to see our children, grandchildren and great grandchildren one or two weeks out of a year. But…God has done the most amazing thing. He brought Brice Taylor to live with us as our daughter. It was not long before we realized we not only got a precious daughter but also grandchildren and great grandchildren. What a joy!
Today is Daddy Stoner’s birthday and the picture above is their birthday card to him. They couldn’t get it all on one card so they are busily making another one in the other room as I write this post. Some of their messages made me cry.
Some of the messages from the children in the picture got truncated in my efforts to put it online, so I’m writing them here for more ease of reading:
Thank you for being a safe man who helps us and does not hurt us. I hope to be able to help you outside soon! Patrick
No one knows us yet on the outside but we know and like you. Sheila
I too scared but thank you for helping us to not get tortured anymore. Scotty
I am Roger who is learning to be a good boy like you. Roger

We a boy like you! And we love Jesus a lot like you! We want more of Jesus. Thank you for teaching us the bible every morning. Jesus says you get an A+! Love Tommy, Onward Christian Soldiers in Jesus’ Army!
Daddy Stoner, Thank you for teaching us the bible and more about Jesus. We are learning lots! I love you, Sandy (no longer a Rothschild!) [Comment: Many parts were taught they were members of the Rothschild family, but they were not.]
