14 Years of Wonderful

Isaac

-A master builder with a mind for construction and design.  
-Loves, loves, LOVES Legos!
-Might not be the biggest guy on earth, but scarcely is there someone with a heart as big as his.
-Loves Tae Kwon Do and shows great power and determination in everything he does there!
-Tender and sweet with babies and toddlers.
-Enjoys a good laugh and his laughter is truly contagious! 
-While getting him to practice piano is a major project most of the time, it's really because he has such a good ear and very little patience for learning the nuts and bolts of a piece of music.  
But once he gets it?  It's memorized and perfectly artistic, of course!

While Isaac's life wasn't bestowed on him with a bucket-full of "easy," I've rarely seen him defeated.  Ambliopia and Strabismus of the eyes (4 surgeries!), growth hormone deficiency, and Type I Diabetes do not define this boy.  If some of us had to deal with only one of these things we might want to give up.  

But... Isaac... Is...

Brave,
Strong,
Powerful,
Brilliant,
Loving,
Funny,
Completely undefeated.

He is my hero!

Isaac, I love you so very much.  God has really big plans for you and I'm so excited to continue to watch them unfold right by your side.  You are quickly growing into a man!  You've got several great models to emulate in that department.  Life is not always easy, but God is a big, great, powerful God.  Cling to him always, dear son.  I'm so proud of you!

Love,

Your Mama
P.S.  THANK YOU for making me a mom!
