I have been thinking for a few days on what to write for your 3rd birthday. I'm not sure why, but even though my mind and heart are filled with so many thoughts and emotions, the words are very hard to find. After being up most of the night thinking and thinking about the journey these past years have been I finally figured it out. It's hard for me to put my thoughts in words simply because there really are few words to describe what you mean to mommie and daddy.
I honestly do not know how I could ever live my life without seeing your pure sweet face every morning. Even though I know that many of your days are filled with hardship I long for those days to never stop. You just keep going despite each and every obstacle put in your path. You are simply amazing.
Last year I asked you if you realized that you have changed the hearts of so many people who are watching your life along side us. It's hard to understand and comprehend the impact you have had on this hospital -- your family and friends -- this world. There is just something about your spirit that reaches out and makes an empty heart full -- can fill even the darkest of places with peace, joy and beauty.
I often question why on Earth God would have chosen me to be your mommie -- I no longer question but fervently ask God to let it never stop. I love you so much my little boy. I pray that in this next year you experience everything life has to offer, no matter what your limitations.
Mommie and Daddy love you.
Happy 3rd Birthday Gavin.
