TWELVE

Keegan,

I can’t believe you are twelve today!  TWELVE!

What I can’t believe the most is that I’m not there to celebrate it with you at school.   It breaks my heart to be away from you on this day, the day that changed my life forever.

You were not an easy child to bring into this life -- you took your sweet time being born -- 29 hours of labor.  I like to think it was that you felt safe being in my tummy as you were and maybe you just didn’t want to leave.

You haven’t left my side since.

I’ve watched you grow from the day you were born.  I’ve loved you and supported you and kissed on you…but you know what?  You’ve done the same thing for me.  If I’m down, you are the first one to step in with a hug and the words “I love you”.  You are my rock, as I am yours, and I don’t know what I would do without you.

You are such an outstanding little man.  So open to new challenges, so willing to go out on a limb, so determined, so focused, so amazing.

I look at you and I see great things.   I see love, I see compassion, I see hope for the future….

But most of all I see you and I see all the possibilities in front of you.  Embrace them, take on the challenges and just GO FOR IT.  Because that, my sweet boy, is what life is all about!

I love you more than I could ever tell you…and I am so proud of you my heart could burst with pride.

You are the best.

You are amazing.

You are mine.

And Oh My God, I love you so much!

~Mom
