four years old.


He made me a mother for a second time and because of a doctor who fended for him from the beginning
of his pregnancy to his entrance into the world, he is here with us today.

It is a privilege to watch this boy grow up and I wouldn't change one minute of his time. He is kind, sensitive and funny! 

On this day four years ago, he shined his light and made my world brighter.

I love you Leif! Happy birthday!

It's been a strange year but i'm grateful for every moment even the trying ones.

Nobody knows what lies ahead or even what the next moment will bring. Liam taught me to appreciate
life and my promise to him is to cherish each day.

Here's to hope for better days and another year with two of my people.

Stories never live alone;
They are the branches of a family
that we have to trace back, and forward.

A few months after he died, I decided to have his portrait done. I confided in someone about my plans, a way to keep him close.

How will they finish him? they asked.
