I surprised our sweet boy on his birthday by showing up to school midday with a car full of balloons and a plan to whisk him away for an afternoon of making dreams come true!!!
His FIRST time ice skating…and my goodness, he was fantastic!
He has been long dreaming of a day to skate on "real ice".
I feel honored to have been able to make his dream come true.
This guy has been through a lot this year.
He has loved and lost…in ways he does not understand.
He daily chooses to be brave…tries to trust…and wants more than anything to love & be loved.
Like I said, I am HONORED to have been able to make one of his dreams come true.
And am thrilled to report: This was his best birthday ever.
From start to finish…he was filled with joy.
It was beautiful.
