Yesterday, Nicholas brought his Christmas project home from school.
He was asked to make a trophy.
and dedicate it to his hero.
We are not unlike other selfless special needs parents
who battle through the minefields
of heart-wrenching medical issues
in an effort to improve the lives of their children,
Our needs as a couple,
and as individuals
are often neglected
as we carry out our duties
with a faithful sense of determination
so we may persevere through the unimaginable.
So, I guess it is appropriate
we celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary
at Children's Hospital in Boston with Nick.
But perhaps our teamwork
and super human effort to endure,
did not go unnoticed by our sensitive son.
