Giving thanks for the gift of my son today on his eighth birthday.
What a journey your Soul chose. We continue to be amazed and inspired by you every day.
You survived against all the odds, and have proved the doctors wrong time and again with your strength and determination.
They said you would never speak, feed or smile, but you fought so hard and now it is such a joy to listen to your words and watch you savour every mouthful of food.
And although your face is paralysed and your mouth can’t curl up into a smile, I can see the beauty of your smile in your right eye whenever it half-closes and a belly laugh erupts from deep within you.
Your Soul shines so brightly. Thank you for the gift of your life and the profound teachings you have brought to us all.
We love you deeply and forever
