Twenty-three years ago today my little Baby Boy was born.
After everything we’ve been through together, I am now his closest friend and his Daddy. I wish I could’ve been his real Daddy, there at his birth, so I could’ve protected him from the lifetime of pain, terror, and sadness he suffered for so long.
But I am at least grateful the universe gave him to me five years ago through this site so I could come to know him and love him. He’s one of the most gentle and insightful creatures in all of creation, but he also has a wicked sense of humor and street smarts beyond compare. He is the bright diamond at the center of my life, the sweetest song of my heart.
Together, we have surmounted every single obstacle the world slammed down in our way. There are no challenges we cannot overcome except the scars we both carry. That, and the damnable physical distance between us. But someday I will hold him in my arms again, and that time it will never end.
I love you, Baby Boy.
Always & Forever.
