A Bright Future

Our youngest son is one terrific kid.  We adopted him when he was just two days old and I'm humbled to be able to call him my son. He will graduate from high school in June, and we are so proud of him.  He's a straight A student since starting school and is talented at many things.  His witty personality lights up any room, but what we are most proud of is his character.  I honestly don't know what I'll do when he leaves to go to college, but I know his future is bright.  I caught this image of him while on a sunset cruise in San Francisco last year and have tried to portray it in watercolor. 

Dear Son,

I didn't give you the gift of life,
But in my heart I know.
The love I feel is deep and real,
As if it had been so.

For us to have each other
Is like a dream come true!
No, I didn't give you
The gift of life,
Life gave me the gift of you.
