Eight years later, there is no greater birthday gift than my little man, my forever hero! Hero, because his existence turns me into the brave man I am slowly becoming. Brave, to change and make the best of every God-given day by paving the way so my family may walk along the blood-stained path of prayer, failure, and courage to rise again. Thank you, Lord, for another year of life for the two of us! Let us forever be entwined, thinking of each other this special day even when separated. Wherever the road may lead us on this journey, may we be forever unified.
