Happy 11th Birthday Tyler

It seems like only yesterday I was holding you in my arms for the very first time, hearing you say your very first word, seeing you walk your very first step. Now 11 years later I am having to let you grow up a bit more with each new day. Before I became a mom, I had no idea how much you could really love another person, then you were born and you became the most important person in my world. My heart was over flowing with love and constant worry for your well being. We used to dance together to Elton John's "The way you look tonight" it would put you right to sleep. Something about your smile and your kind heart and the way you sometimes now comfort me 11 years later, reminds me each day how lucky I am to have a son like you. Happy 11th Birthday Tyler, I love you!!!!

Happy Birthday Tyler. I hope you had a great day and a wonderful year ahead.

Mom, you have done a wonderful job being his mom. All of those wonderful qualities that you love came from you. Good job:)!

Your mom is right...time passes so quickly after becomming a mom. Something you someday will experience when you have kids of your own. With your kind heart, compassion and kindness you're becomming a wonderful young man.

Shelly & John: You've done an amazing job!! 11 years of your life has been devoted to doing what's in your childrens best interests. And somehow, you still find time for your own relationship too. Great job!!
