Happy Birthday July 13 , 1999By Cathryn Mindel, email@example.com
year on this earth today ,
Your life has changed me in so many ways ,
All of the things your little body endures ,
The Doctors , the therapists ,never a time to rest ,
But you just smile and laugh ,
And seem to know its for the best.
describe you , my baby boy ,
They use words like disabilities and special needs ,
I love and accept you for all that you are ,
But you're so much more to me.
have taken us down a different road ,
Than we've ever known before ,
You've taught me to accept whatever life may throw my way ,
And that you never know , what's behind the next door.
, my son , I want to thank you now ,
For all that you will teach me ,
Thank you for choosing me to be your Mother ,
And for being here with me.
