A Love Letter to My Oldest Son

Dear Stephen Jr.                                                                           Every month Everyday, Infinity

Oh My little man! You are such a unique soul. We all know you were sent to us in a very special package. Yes you have albinism, low vision, sensory processing stuff, and ADHD. You ALSO have one of the smartest, bravest, most loyal souls I have ever been blessed to know. From the moment you arrived you have had this sixth sense about emotions and feelings. You have taught us all the importance of being respectful and honest while sharing our feelings and communicating. It is no secret that you yourself have really struggled to share your feelings and communicate with others in your first few years. Daddy and I want you to know that we are so proud of you! You are AMAZING! We always want you to remember that before you brush your teeth each morning you have already worked harder than some people do all day. Honestly, you adapt, and compensate for your challenges so well that we often have to remind your teachers and friends that you are always working very hard, just to be still, just to write, just to play, just to eat, just to listen. We know that it is difficult to be you, even though you often make the rest of the world forget, Daddy and I know. We want you to always remember, we got your back! No matter what. NO MATTER WHAT.

11238217_1153297024685018_800661889105781001_nDid you know that your horoscope says;

IF YOU ARE BORN ON FEBRUARY 26, you are very sympathetic to the needs of others. You can be supportive and compassionate. The 26th February zodiac sign is Pisces – the fish. Sometimes, you make sacrifices for your friends and family members and can find the best in anybody or in any situation.You have that unique ability to sense when something is wrong. You who are born on this day, are selfless individuals who should be applauded.

Pisces birthday horoscope for 26th February predicts that, you tend to be a bit emotional which is human but it influences your ability to remain the positive person that you truly are. When your emotions run deep, you can get in a mood but even that can be a positive thing. You see, while you are quite, Pisces, you can tune into your unique abilities and spiritual connections.

If today is your birthday,then you can be quite the dreamer. Sometimes, you prefer to be in your own little world. Pisceans are likely to think about love and romance. You design a world that is picturesque and uniquely yours. Because you can dream this, you want to share your ideas with those you love.



Oh how true these words are. My little Stephen you have been in love since you were 4 years old. First there was that special girl from your Preschool and Pre-K classes. You declared you would marry her. She was equally smitten with you. Then there was another young lady from elementary school. You proposed to her in the butterfly garden with a candy ring. She accepted and we are all waiting for the wedding. 

Your birthday meanings also show that your career goals can be most challenging. Choosing a profession can be difficult as you are suited in many areas that are people oriented. Pisceans are great at social working or even politics. From the looks of others born on this day, you may be musically inclined. If you are so lucky as to have this talent (singing or playing an instrument), try your hand at it. You may not become extremely famous but you could make a decent living given the right venue.
Pisceans born on February 26 love to travel. Seeing the world only embraces their need to fantasize. In a way, it refreshes and clears their drained state of mind. Being the shoulder that everyone uses, it can wear heavy on a Pisces.

He and I were not surprised to hear this at all!  YOU, young man, have been helping animals and people since you could walk. In our home your brother has a reputation of being “Joseph The Joy Spreader” You Stephen, you have the reputation for being “Stephen The Nurturer”   You are a natural leader and caretaker and you do not take no for an answer! We know you will leave a remarkable footprint on this earth and we thank God everyday for making us your parents.  We are so excited to grow with you as you come into your own.
May the good Lord bless you and keep you.

Infinity times infinity,
