My precious boy that was enough reason for me to change my life.
You'll speak up for someone else before speaking up for yourself.
You're gentle and kind; compassionate beyond your years.
You're hard-working, organized, always striving to please.
I love how you've treated your little brother so kindly since the day he was born.
I love how much you adore your baby sister.
I love how you'll give up anything you have if it makes someone else happy.
I love how you put everyone else before yourself. And you didn't learn that from me. It is in your nature.
I love how you wave goodbye to me from the minute you leave the van, all the way until you've reached the door of your school.
If you make someone sad, it hurts you worse than it hurts them.
Please don't ever lose your compassionate heart.
Please don't let anyone stifle your sweet spirit.
I wish you the very best in this life.
Keep your family close; God closer.
My sweet boy that wants to right every wrong, make everything fair, have everything equal.
Even though life doesn't work that way, keep believing that it should, and you can change the world.
Happy 9th birthday Collin! We love you more than you know.
