Your dad and I are so proud of how much you have changed and grown in the past three years. We worried for a while about whether your inner and outer struggles would take hold of you. In the end, we are honored to say that you have pushed yourself harder physically and mentally than you (and sometimes we) ever thought possible. We look forward to witnessing your continued achievement and success in both your professional and personal lives. Listen to and channel your inner voice and know that your dad and I will always be here, there, and everywhere for you. While we sometimes struggle to find the words to utter this to you personally, know that you are loved to the sky and back again.
Nothing compares to the feeling of pride your dad and I have at seeing our little boy grow up into such a compassionate young man. Thank you for that feeling. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to call ourselves proud parents.
All my love,
Your Other Mother
