  • Happy 15th Birthday Josh!

    Everyday is a fight for you,
    and me
    and I don't mind

    People, really smart people with PhD's behind their names use words like retarded to describe you

    make moaning sounds to imitate your voice
    for a laugh.

    and you are braver
    and smarter
    and stronger

    Everyday I love you
    and thank God for you
    your courageous, patient and loving heart.

    Thanks for letting me be your mom.
    You've beat the odds and I can't look at you without seeing the faces of so many others
    just like you
    who didn't make it

    we are the lucky ones.
    And I'm glad for you everyday.
