I love your soul and your caring nature, you have taught me patience, understanding and the meaning of pure joy. And I love your personality and sense of humor, two things I hope you have gained from me, and I love that you love me and that you know I love you.

There are times when storms of Autism take you from me, I see your frustration, your anger, your joy and your fear. And I know that God has entrusted me with you and I will see you through every storm, witness all your anger and frustration and face every fear with you. You came to me as a gift and I will work my entire life to treat you as such, you and your brother, everyday.

Moments like this are priceless, once in a life time and once again I have been blessed to see how blessed I am, have been and will be, if only for a moment. The world stopped if just for a moment and this picture of you captured all that is right and good . . . in just one moment. You and your brother have given me many moments like this, more than and as many as I deserve and I am thankful that for just a moment that I have this to enjoy and more.

 “Just because you don’t say much doesn’t mean people don’t notice you. It’s actually the quiet ones who often draw the most attention. There’s this constant whirlwind of motion and sound all around, and then there’s the quiet one, the eye of the storm.”  ― Amy Efaw, After

I love you Hunter Cole, and your brother Kyle Gene and I love you for moments like this, thank you.
