We are so proud of the young man you are becoming. I know this year as been rough where we have all been spread out all over Virginia helping David get better. We are sad you have had to grow up so fast this year, but we are so proud of the young man you are becoming. You have a heart that worries about me and about others and I know our time at UVA has impacted you as well. Stay close to Jesus sweet boy because He has an awesome plan for you. I hate we have had to endure this nightmare, but I am thankful for the maturity, sweetness, and grace I see from you because of it. We love you and we are so proud of you!
I know Daddy and I have both had to miss several important things this year, but our heart is with you always even when we cannot get there. I love how you ask about our UVA friends and how sweet you are to people younger than you. You are mature and wise beyond your years sweet boy. I do not want you to keep growing this fast, but I cannot wait to see what God has planned for you. Just know that we are both so proud of your maturity and kindness and my heart has been so touched watching you jump in at the food pantry, help your siblings, and be kind to everyone.
