My baby turned 20 today. I can no longer say I have a teenager.
I am so proud of this young man. He studies and works hard in school to keep his grades up and his scholarship in good standing, but that is not the reason I am proud of him.
I am proud of him because even though he seems aloof, he is extremely compassionate and full of empathy.
He is so much like me it is scary, but to balance that out he has a lot of his father's wonderful qualities. I know Raymond would be proud too.
Happy birthday son. I love you more than you will ever know or understand.
