I figured I would have a happy post while we are having the calm before the storm. I happened to be reading an old friend's blog when she had happened to post some beautiful words for Tanner.
She hit the nail on the head by saying that we couldn't be called high school "best friends," because we were more than that. We were inseparable, linked at the hip and had our own language.
She has always had such an eloquent way with words that I never have had. The things she posted about my son brought tears to my eyes, I could barely get through her entire post without the effort of blinking through the tears.
Her kind and touching post can be found here.
Thank you so much for making my day, Bean. Even though the different paths we have taken in our lives, I know that we are still inseparable in ways that no one would understand. I love you.
I have also posted pictures of a happier time before we knew about all of this that is going on.
These pictures were taken by my wonderfully talented, beautiful, amazing step sister when he was about an hour old...
These pictures were taken by Kollin as the Bella Babies photographer came to our room in the hospital to take cutie patutie pictures of the little guy...
He is such a perfect and content baby. He never fusses unless the nurses are messing with him with all the tests they have to do. He just lounges around either sleeping or looking at you and studying your face.
I will always love these pictures. They will remind me of a better time, and a time before he was given away to doctors and came back with scars.
I know there will be happy times ahead of us, but these will always make me smile. I hope they do the same for you.
