I sit in amazement as I watch you.
I watch you make strides in wonderment
I applaud and share your accomplishments no matter how big or how small.

I laugh with you, I cry with you
I wonder where you get the strength to deal with things that I know I could not.

My baby. My shining star. My inspiration
You have shown others the true meaning of love and acceptance and the importance of inclusion.

From your infectious laugh to your impish smile, you my baby boy have given such joy to our family. We love you more than you will ever know.

My baby, my inspiration, my joy, my hope and my dreams.
