Today you turn nine. Nine years old. Yet to me you are still my baby. It only seems like yesterday that we were scared to sleep because we knew the next day you were coming.
Your start was a little bumpy to say the least. The threat of preeclampsia loomed over us like a dark cloud and I worried that you would be ok. Then our worse fears were realised when we almost lost you. We will never know what made you so ill but thank goodness for the brilliant Drs and nurses who pulled you through and kept us going too.
You are our pride and joy, filling our lives with love and happiness. I am immensely proud of the loving, caring young man that you are growing up to be. You inspire me as you have this amazing tenacity. I know you will be whatever you set your mind to be!
