He goes by the handle “Rocket”.

No, sorry, he is not actually on Twitter yet.  He’s only 8 years old (as of today).

But mark my words.  He is someone you’re going to want to keep tabs on.

I see great things coming down the pike from This One.

More than the greatest Lego creations ever made – he has a heart wider and deeper than the ocean to share with you.  With everyone.

He’s a bit of a goofball, but it is a remarkably charming quality and it works for him.  If you can interrupt the spasticity and get a peek straight into his deep, green eyes you’ll see it – a wisdom beyond his years and the ability to surround you and wrap you up in his magical gaze and just pull you inside.  Pull you right in to a sweet, gentle soul that loves without apprehension.  A young man without prejudice who already seems to grasp that we are all with faults and nobody’s perfect, but we all are special and worthy no matter what we are challenged by.

I love this boy with all my heart and I plan to follow him anywhere.  He is a great gift from God, with a heart filled with joy, and I wish him the happiest birthday today.

Mama loves you, Snugglebear.

I will follow you to the stars and back, my Beautiful Boy.

      Thank you so much, Cheairs! I felt like this was the first ‘real’ birthday my son has ever had – Dad was home, RM was managable, and all he wanted was a sleepover with his cousins and a friend. The sleepover tonight seems a success… will let everyone know if I survived by morning ;0)
