He entered this world with a mind of his own… just a year and a half after his grandfather died and 15 months after his brother was stillborn.

I adored him from the start.  Perhaps, I loved him more because of my loss.

But love that child, I did.  He’s grown now, but I still clearly remember those early years.

But this one was different.  I thought him the most wonderful being in all creation.

We’d go without just to feed them.  We’d do without to make their dreams come true.
