So long ago I never imagined this day would come. I wallowed in self pity, misery & anger. And now, I’m thrilled, I’m ecstactic, and words cannot fully describe how amazing this is.

Doctors never gave him a fighting chance. They told us to count our moments, and not to expect anything but an untimely, short death. Back then, I thought doctors were always right. I held my son close, because I thought it would be my only chance.
Boy have things changed….

In the past year, I’ve learned that medicine isn’t 100%, that it’s called “medical practice” for a reason, because NOTHING is for sure. I’ve learned that doctors don’t always know everything, and mommy ALWAYS knows best. I’ve become more confident in myself, and a stronger person as a whole. I can stand up to people now, because if I don’t advocate for Sean, bad things tend to happen. I’ve learned that no one can tell you how to live your life but YOU, and no one should ever even try.

Most of all, I’ve learned to appreciate every moment, because it may not be there tomorrow. Love those you care for deeply, always kiss them goodnight, and never forget that even on the worst of days, you would give your very soul for their happiness.

So Here’s to You, Sean Cain. My life, my journey, my soul for you. You are the best and most wonderful thing in my life, and I’d be lost without you. You are my miracle, my breath and my heart. You’ve made me a better person, because you love me just as unconditionally as I love you. Here’s to many more happy birthdays, many more smiles, kisses & hugs. I love you, dear child of mine, and am TRUELY blessed to call you my son.

“Life is not counted by the milestones we meet, but by the moments we make…”
