Dear Sweet Son Jack,
Thank you for sharing your beautiful life and soul with your sister and I. We had the most beautiful crazy chaotic time with you in Disney and we are so grateful for your health and safety.
I look forward to seeing you soon.
To wrap my arms around you.
To hold you tight.
I am so proud of who you are even when we struggle or disagree.
I am proud that you have your own thoughts,
and your own beliefs.
I am proud of your self expression - happiness, anger, joy and laughter.
All of who you are is a master piece.
I feel humbled to experience you!
My life has expanded in ways I never dreamed possible.
In your unabashed and fearless expression I am tested, and pushed to grow.
Thank you for pushing and pulling and loving me.
Sometimes I worry.
Sometimes I make myself wrong.
I think most parents find reason to be unsure.
My hope and prayer is that we find the magic in the little things and little spaces.
I will always be there waiting with open loving arms.
Come as you are - there’s never a too soon or too late.
You are a gift to the world just as you are.
A beautiful soul.
Keep your spirits high.
Know your worth.
You are never alone.
I love you buddy,
As a native of Salt Lake City, Utah I grew up in a family well versed in the concepts of health and well being as a way of life.
