A Preteen

Well my sweet Jack, my firstborn, you turned 11 today. I'll never forget the day I discovered I was expecting you, and the fear, and joy I experienced in the months that led to your birth. You started me on a path that I never expected to take, you changed me forever into a mother. I will always feel a special link to you as my first child.

I have loved watching you change and grow...your spirit, and your sparkle . You have become a kind, thoughtful, and dynamic young man and I am so proud of you.

I always think of the day Barbra told me she knew she was "gonna read about you in the paper one day"..that you were going to be something special...and she couldn't wait to see what it was. I look forward to you finding what the future holds for you.

The last year has brought many hard things, but also 2 wonderful things(your sisters!). You have weathered them all with humor and grace and I thank you for that.

Happy Birthday my Sweet Pea.
