Baptism Day

April 7, 2002

Diana John Trish and StevenThis is me on my baptism day, with my Mommy, Trish; my Daddy, John; and big sister, Diana. Reverend Harry Baxter of the College Park United Methodist Church, came to my house and performed the ceremony right in my very own living room. It was a beautiful ceremony filled with the love of family and friends. My good friend and namesake, "Big Steve," took these pictures, which I would like to share with you now.

Uncle Mike and Aunt MelMy Uncle Mike and Aunt Mel came in from Florida just to spend the day with me. I feel so special!! I can't wait until I'm big enough to visit Uncle Mike's "boss" in Orlando!

I had some really special visitors that day, all the way from Israel! They are friends of my Mommy and Daddy, through their project for parents with disabilities. See those pictures here.
