We may never really know the real day of Philips birth. He was found in November of 1998 in Central Thailand. He was placed in a basket in a crowded market place. The police came, and no one came forward to claim him. Philip had 2 holes in his heart (ASD and VSD). Thailand gave him a birthday of Jan 1, 1998. Maybe he really was 11 months old, or only 2 months old? We don't really know. We are changing his birthday to October 17TH. My mom had a dream about the date of his birth. It's a long story, but we are going with the date in her dream. Today Philip is 9 years old. He is very excited. He expects ALL GOOD THINGS today. He has been saying, "on my birthday I want this to eat", and "on my birthday, I get to do that"! He plans to milk it for all it's worth! I am so happy to give him this special day, even if it may not actually be the real day. Today he is a prince and we honor the day he was born!
