Happy Birthday Baby Boy!

I just can't believe it's been a year already! A year that has been filled with love, joy and laughter tempered with frustration, worry and doubt. A year where I have watched my beautiful son develop into a happy little independent boy. I never even knew I wanted a son until I had one and the experience has been so wonderful and fulfilling. Watching him change day by day and seeing the joy on his little face when I wake up in the morning. Having him cry when I leave the room and then follow me and stretch his little arms up to me, these are things that have made this last year so rewarding. Watching this little champ ignore his temporary disability and develop at a normal rate anyway because no one told him he couldn't. I am quite sure that the best days of my life are still ahead of me and one day when I see him running towards me, I will know that any of the trials we endured during this year were so worth it. I always want him to know that I sought (and fought for) the best possible treatment for him to ensure that his future will be all that it can be. I can't wait to see him on two sturdy, perfect feet when he is a grown man.

Dear Hayden;

You are the love of my life and I adore you.

Love Mom

A few days old
