I can hardly believe that 13 years ago today I was holding my newborn son in my arms. I have watched him grow and learn and am so proud of the young man he is today. He is loyal and strong. He has a keen understanding of what is right and wrong. He feels deeply and reacts strongly. He sees injustice and is infuriated by its existence. To look at him you might think he is older and more grown up than his age. I know that he is still a child at heart. A boy who enjoys games, toys and fun. I love him more today than the day he was born. It is truly amazing how the capacity for love grows and grows. I am thankful that he was gifted to me for this time. I am blessed.
