He was on my belly and I looked into the bluest eyes – exclaimed over the blonde hair – and lost myself forever. The baby has grown into a beautiful young teen. Two of his teachers pulled me aside this week and said “what a NICE young man” – “I enjoy talking with him, he asks the best questions” “He really can have adult conversations” – I cried each time. I have each end of a spectrum and I am grateful that his path is easier but Larkin has taught him to protect those who need us to and to have compassion for those with differences. Hard lesson to learn at 10 but he has stepped up beautifully.
I love you baby Chase. I love everything about you. I love your soul, spirit, gentleness, compassion and those green eyes. Thank you God for trusting me with him. Thank you to his dad Mr. Ex – because you are great ex and a great dad. Thank you to Andy for loving him as if he were your own.
I am off to cry because it all goes too fast. But he is a beauty to watch. 36 hours of labor and a lifetime of love.
